Hypertufa Troll Faces
I've just got back into making hypertufa after a long time absent - and I'm wondering why I left it so long! I grow lots of Sedum, Sempervivum, Jovibarba and other little alpine plants (in my other persona of Drought Smart Plants) that fit perfectly with the look of rock that hypertufa gives you.
Pinch pots, troughs, earth molded pots are all lots of fun, but now, my latest thing is funny faces. These are about the size of your fist, and carved roughly into the shape of a face. I can see these sneaking into a pile of rocks around a bird bath, or in a rock garden. They'll be a surprise for the person who spots them.
I'll be making lots more of these, and I'm hoping to make several different sizes, as of course, rocks and stones come in all sizes too.
Watch out in your garden for the rock people.
