Wooden mushrooms for accents

Post  Harleyrider on Wed Nov 11, 2009 7:06 pm

My wife has just suggested that these small wooden mushrooms would make good accents. We buy them from a local wood turner who comes to our church's annual Craft Fair. Prices range from around £2 - £7, depending on size and wood used.

If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll see if he'll let me have some 'on approval'.

Not a bad idea Mrs HR Wink

I know that Andy has some dinky little ceramic ones that he got from a lady potter that look quite cute.
Maybe food for thought there mate!!

Indeed

Thanks Will, I'd forgotten about that article. Not long after that, I started incorporating fungi, including the scarlet wax cap, alongside some trees (in the pot rather than as an accent) and it worked very well. I guess the downside is their seasonality so perhaps the artificial ones could come into play then.

Peter Snart displayed his Cork Bark Oak along with a nice wooden mushroom accent. Here it is at an exhibition I ran at Glasgow Botanic Gardens.

I had a few on my website that were made by a fellow potter, did not sell one Sad, shame really as I thought they would have gone down well in the Bonsai world
