Lisa Fida derives inspiration for many of her creations from the natural world, and decided from the outset that she wanted to use materials that would stand up to the rigors of Mother Nature. She personally handcrafts her copper, glass, and cast stone pieces in her workshop, which is located on a sprawling property in the mountains of western Maine. "Copper develops a beautiful patina, glass sparkles in the sunlight, and cast stone provides a natural texture," she says.

Happy little poop

I got Cliffy as a reward! He's such a happy little poop. My coworkers marvel and pet him and I get lots of compliments. He's made me the bell off the cubicle ball!

Disappointed with this purchase, looks much cuter online. I completely agree on other reviews, the glue holding the leaf is in a lump and highly visible, darker in color then in the picture and does resemble a poo!
I will be returning this.

    It's a good price for a good quality product. It was a little smaller than I expected, but nothing crazy. It's a good product, especially when paired with other characters from this series. (Like Henry the Hummingbird.)

      Comments about UncommonGoods Clifford the Copper Eating Caterpillar:

      The day I met Clifford, I was confused... what are you? why do you exist? who made you? what purpose do you serve? As the days went by and he sat on my desk, I often pondered these things while slowly consuming mass quantities of caffeine. Then, one day, my existential crisis was over. I had been shown the light. Clifford was here to bring joy to world. Call him a savior or a clever little critter, Clifford has fulfilled his purpose day in and day out. If only I could find Clifford a companion as captivating and as he is and as crisp as the leaf he so delicately munches. I can only hope.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Clifford the Copper Eating Caterpillar:

        I wish there was an option to give Clifford 6 stars. I keep this little guy on my desk and he has truly made my life a garden. Clifford, frozen in upright happiness, reminds me of the important things in life: reach for the rose gold, never miss a snack, and glue yourself to what you love. I've always wanted a pet and sweet Clifford has fulfilled all those dreams and more completely hassle-free. I hope for all people the joy I've found in Clifford's cheery concrete.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Clifford the Copper Eating Caterpillar:

        I love the design of this garden caterpillar carrying its copper leaf. However, and as others have noted, the point where the leaf stem attaches to the caterpillar is very delicate. Mine arrived broken in transit. I liked it so much and wanted it for a gift that I decided to fix it myself with a bit of epoxy. That seemed to work well, and I doubt it will be noticed when placed in the garden or on the porch.
