Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Fortunately, it does, both in terms of beauty and durability. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. The Warren's make sure all their handmade stoneware is made in an environmentally friendly fashion and hope you take as much pleasure in their art as they do in exploring new ways to innovate current standards. collection

    Comments about "LATIN" GARDEN STAKES - SET OF 3:

    I got these for my mom, who is not only an avid gardener, but has a science degree. The combination of "nerd factor" with the psuedo-scientific names and the gardening humor made them perfect. She loved receiving them for Mother's Day.

    Comments about "LATIN" GARDEN STAKES - SET OF 3:

    I purchased these hilarious garden stakes for a family member who loves to garden but does not like to weed. He also took Latin in college. The stoneware is of a high quality and texture. They also appear very sturdy and were larger than I expected. I also like that a tag comes attached that highlights the artist who made them.

      Comments about "LATIN" GARDEN STAKES - SET OF 3:

      I bought this as a gift for my dad who loves working in his garden. As the gift hasn't been given yet, I don't know about the durability of the product, but they are super cute in person and they look very well made. They are heavier than they look also, so although I bought them for potted plant use, I bet they would do well in a back yard garden as well. I would buy another couple sets for myself and my plant-loving mother in law if the price wasn't quite so high.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was very quick and the product was wrapped up so well that I didn't know what it was at first. Very impressed overall.

          I purchased these well ahead of time to give as a Christmas gift so it will be awhile before I know how they will hold up. However, they seem to be heavy unglazed ceramic. I'm hoping they won't crack or break if dropped. I love the whimsical wording and I know the gift recipient will love them too. Something unusual I haven't seen anywhere else!

              Ordered these for my mom for Mother's day. She loved them! As an avid gardener as well as a former parochial school inmate, she was totally charmed by them. They are weighty and substantial, seem to be unglazed pottery, approx 8 inches long, 3.5 inches wide and .5 inch thick. We only wish they had more "varieties"!

              I'm on the fence with this one. Not enough information to tell me exactly how big they are. Love the concept, but how much will be seen of them in the garden for $30.00. I do like cute garden stuff, though.

              Too expensive for a joke. Make them much larger, and it would be a great hit as a gift for those folks who can't even get a weed to grow. Then this would sell oh so well! They would be better priced as well.

              I have no idea how large they are...and for $30 I'd want more than just gag stakes...i'd want a whole set of 'tomatoes' peppers' 'zucchini' basil' etc etc and then throw these gag ones in as well!
