This sweet snail on a tree branch copper-foiled stained glass plant-stake was handmade by Tamara Goldsmith in her Portland, OR studio. The shell is geep mottled green and grass green tones, and the leaves are purplish orange, feels like fall! These adorable additions to any potted plant are the perfect size for gift-giving and come in a wide array of colors. Soldered to a 6” brass rod, these ingenious plant stakes are meant to slide into the soil of any potted houseplant … to add some visual flair to one's decor. The solder lines and lead came frame on this piece have been given a black patina, and are waxed for a protective, shiny surface.
Measures about 10” long, 3” wide.
60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came. Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded or causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece. Lead does not touch the plant or soil so it's completely safe.
