A Shroom of One's Own

Take your garden on a trip with these vibrant ceramic mushrooms handmade by brothers Jeremy and Adam Neff. Saturated colors, keen attention to detail and plenty of personality...now all you need is grass. Handmade in the USA. Each is one-of-a-kind and color and shape will vary.

Attention: Shroomies don't like the cold! They are not frost-proof and can shatter if left out in freezing temperatures. Please bring your Shroomies inside when the temperature is at or below freezing.

Adam and Jeremy Neff

It was during a high school pottery class that the Neff brothers discovered their true calling. For Christmas that year their dad bought them a potter's wheel and small kiln. Fooling around one day, they made a few "ugly mushrooms." On a whim, a family friend took some to a garden expo and came back with $2000 worth of orders. "From two high schoolers' perspective we thought we had hit it big," says Jeremy. Lucky for the brothers, their dad bought them another kiln, and the family garage was soon a full-fledged mushroom factory.

With just a little high school pottery class knowledge, the brothers started making the Shroomies for local garden shops and gift stores. "We made every possible mistake you could think of in the early days," says Jeremy. As demand grew the Neffs hired their friends and trained them to be mushroom makers.

"When our friends would graduate from college and get 'real' jobs they would usually pass their position onto a younger sibling or a friend...the majority of the hands-on crafting is still done by college students working their way through college."

Natives of Salt Lake City, Jeremy oversees product development, while Adam manages production. They have been in business since 2000.

    Comments about MINI SHROOMIES:

    The mushrooms look very nice, their color is bright and the design looks much better then cheap "discount stores". However, this is more expensive. I bought mine to decorate the living room, so I had to use something more chic.

                I bought some mini and medium shroomies for my mom as a Mothers's Day gift. She loves working in her yard, and has a beautiful garden. These cute, bright little decorations look perfect and whimsical under the dogwood in her front yard!

                  I got these for my husband's birthday... he definitely sees himself as an honorary child of the 60's, and he loved them! I haven't seen anything quite like them anywhere, and I have an eye out for mushroom-related items always. The only thing that could even be considered a con is that once you've put them in your yard, you WILL wish you had 100 of them!
