Here are a few pieces of my attempt to make my own totems from ceramic and found objects. I am way behind in getting these together and they need a lot of work. I had too many boxes of components to store so upright they will go. LOL The original inspiration pieces are shown next to it. No comparison to mine I'm afraid.In the totem album on my flickr are pics of the components as I made them from ceramic. I am still finishing the leaves and components I am making from crete.
