Garden Angel

While you bustle during the day and drift off to dreamland at night, garden angels look over your buds and blossoms. And by angels we mean spiders: they're the ultimate yard advocate, banishing outdoor pests like flies, beetles, and aphids so flora can bloom freely. Inspired by these eight-legged overseers, Catherine Murphy handcrafted this springing spider stake. Its patina copper finish reflects light in warm rays, and delicate lines match the complex beauty of its muse. Sink the critter in or near a bed of flowers, fruits, or veggies as a whimsical good luck charm, and watch as it springs and sways in the wind. Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina.

North Carolina

Growing up in a military family, Catherine Murphy spent her childhood discovering new places around the world and every locale's characteristic outdoor sites. Each time she sits down to create a new piece, however, the metalworker pictures it living in her favorite place in the world: "a fabulous garden," she says, adding that she's "amazed and inspired by life in the garden.”

Her nature-themed wire copper sculptures only serve to make the green spaces themselves more amazing. In fact, it’s that merging of her two loves that "feeds my soul and keeps me motivated," she says. And if the North Carolina resident ever gets stuck, all she needs to do is go outside. "When those moments come up, my go-to spot is a bench by the river," she says. "Living in the mountains and working beside a river make for a wealth of inspiration."
