Description
Meticulously reproduced with exacting detail from artist Dave Miller's original wood carvings, this loving Mother Duck with 3 Ducklings garden accent 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.

Comments about Product:
We're enjoying the addition of mother duck and her three ducklings in our backyard; some of our live residents also have enjoyed (or resented) the arrival of this family by knocking them over soon after they arrived! :-) Only cosmetic concern is that the heads took us some work to position in upright positions.

Didn't Last One Summer
Comments about Product:
By the middle of summer, most of the paint had chipped off. They look really bad and I doubt if I will even put them in my garden this summer.

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!
