Description
Meticulously reproduced with exacting detail from artist Dave Miller's original wood carvings, this woodpecker sculpture is cast in all-weather resin (the perfect medium for both realism and durability) and beautifully hand-painted. His endearing expression and jointed body give him a liveliness and personality unlike any other garden statuary. A special addition to your own garden or a great gift for someone else.

Pennsylvania sculptor Dave Miller finds his inspiration in the wonders of nature. Since childhood, he has enjoyed spending time outdoors, educating himself about a variety of wildlife, mastering each creature's unique traits. Our Madison Meadows Collection is inspired by his detailed, animated hand carvings.

• Polystone woodpecker garden accent

Comments about Product:
We have a garden/fish pond in the backyard. The woodpecker is "guarding" the headwaters waterfall of our stream. It is very realistic and a great addition to the setting.

Comments about Product:
We are delighted with our new resident woodpecker ... only missing the pecking rat-a-tat-tat sound effects! The live residents of our backyard -- either to show their joy toward, or resentment for, their new red-headed neighbor -- have knocked him over a few times, but they seem to be getting used to each other. ;-) (It took us a bit to position the head to an upright position, but that's a minor thing.)

It looked somewhat like a Pileated Woodp
Comments about Product:
Doesn't have the actual look of the Pileated Woodpecker, but I guess from a distance it would be fine. I just love the Pileated and hoped it would look just like him.

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.


When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.


The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.


Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:


Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
