All Sunflowers, Daisies and Black-eyed Susans are finished with securely-attached rust-proof, coated wire for hanging with the exception of our Mini Sunflowers, Baby Daisies and Baby Black-eyed Susans, which accommodate your preferred hanging apparatus. Mini Sunflowers, Baby Daisies and Baby Black-eyed Susans are sold with an 18" stake upcycled from political campaign signs (Black Cat Pottery is a non-partisan recycler);
All Sunflowers, Daisies, Black-eyed Susans and Poppies are water proof as well as frost proof for the average high-midwestern winter (insofar as such a thing actually exists).
Each piece is individually fabricated, bisque fired, glazed, high-fired and finished by me in my production and teaching studio, making each one a unique work of art.

Original Pottery Sunflowers
Our Original Pottery Sunflowers - so called because they were our first sunflower designs - are finished with a selection of oxides and stains fired into the clay body, resulting in a timeless matte finish that will never fade, flake or wash out.
Fancy Pottery Sunflowers
For our Fancy Sunflowers, I use the bolder textures used in our Original Sunflowers, glazing the centers with in a rich chocolate brown and the petals with wild, unexpected jewel tones.
Deluxe Pottery Sunflowers
Our Deluxe Sunflowers come in our "Classic" and "Premium" series and feature applied textures - using various techniques - and rich, warm earth tone glazes to make each sunflower a unique work of art.
Our pottery Poppies are available in three sizes: Small (5.5" diameter), Medium (7.5" diameter) and Large (12" diameter). (All measurements are approximate) and come in 11 colors.
