The Original Idea
Pacific Northwest Clay Totems
Grade Level: all ages Clay is a wonderful medium for all ages. It provided an excellent way to introduce the Pacific Northwest First Nations culture, symbols, and art to these K-6 students. Introducing the students to the culture of these peoples through a look and discussion of the monumental sculptures that were created once in abundance led to a hands-on totem segment building project. Each student created a unique totem pole segment with clay that was then fired and later painted. The…
Northwest Flower and Garden Show Part One: The Skybridge
Contrary to the highly urbane and terribly sophisticated image you may have of me, (yeah, right) I'm pretty much a small town homebody so navigating the big city of Seattle can be quite a harrowing experience for this simple hayseed.

This totem can be hung from a tree branch, fence, garden gate or siding. It is perfectly sized for your secret garden entryway, porch or doorway. These sculptures invite pause, year-round, in the garden and are durable enough to have…

400th Blog post! This one's got pix for a change...(Marcia Donahue's garden art)
Marcia Donahue, featuring her captivating smile I'm a tad self conscious: 400 Blog posts!...I suppose I have been at it a number of years now. Serendipity rules: I shall be able to celebrate #401 by sharing some delightful images. I have been on record as having doubts about garden art. Marcia Donahue makes me recant! She is probably America's greatest garden sculptor--her work is inspiring. Although it was late afternoon in mid-winter, it was a thrill (as you can probably tell) to spend a…
