stick-in-the-muds: cat & dogby Hadley Sedgwick
- the story
Garden's Best Friend
Like cheery characters straight from a Saturday morning cartoon, these creative garden fixtures add quirky charm and a personal touch to those outdoor corners needing a touch of inspiration. Artist Hadley Kelly makes each ceramic sculpture by hand, pressing clay into canvas to create the texture and dimension unique to every figurine. An oxide wash and layers of special glaze provides the brilliant coloring for this dynamic duo. Use its steel stake to let these new friends frolic among your flowers--they're sure to brighten your garden (and your day) every time you see them. Handmade on Tybee Island, Georgia.

- the maker
A graduate from the Herron School of Art, Hadley Sedgwick currently works in ceramics, bringing sculpture to outdoor and garden settings. Art retailers across the country find demand for her spontaneity, taste and playful expression. Hadley lives on Tybee Island, Ga. with her kiln, husband and two dogs.
"These pieces are me--they are expressions of who I am," Hadley said. "These small animals have my own naivete, innocence and spontaneity. Further beneath the surface, they all bear wounds and scars, permanent lines rendered awkwardly across their faces and bodies. Yet, against this backdrop an inner beauty shines through. Glossy, shimmering, bright colors, and cute, childlike expressions suggest true personal transformation."
