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.

Yes, my leaf arrived broken too. I suspect the possibility I received someone else's return because my copper stem appeared to be glued well but this journey to me caused a small part of his stone finger (plus leaf) to break off!

I was prepared for this though with all the reviews. I really wanted my mother to have Clifford. Earlier this year she raised a Monarch butterfly in the house. Just too cute. I used a strong clear glue to put him back together. Two applications with two overnights drying before wrapping him up for birthday presentation.

Mother was pleased.

Disappointing Purchase

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...Read complete review

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.

            This is super cute, but in shipping the leaf gets broken off because of how it's packaged. Uncommon goods was great about shipping another one at no cost but it came busted too. Third time was the charm. Really awesome gift just wish it hadn't been packaged incorrectly.
