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.

“Like attracts like, as well as inspires it.”

Growing up in a military family, Catherine Murphy spent her childhood discovering new places around the world, and every place'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 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."

My daughter loved it!

I bought this to mark the place where we buried my daughters beloved "pet" Tarantula in my flower garden. The look on my daughter's face when she saw I purchased it as her baby Dahlia's grave marker, made me glad I got it. It's very pretty and adds a nice touch among the flowers. It's perfect.

Had to Get A Second One!

Have many garden stake art pieces, most from Uncommon Goods. This one was so neat (and who doesn't like spiders!) had to get one for our daughter's yard for her birthday. For me, buying a second speaks volumes.
