Brooke Pottery is delighted to feature six enchanting pewter wall sculptures by Ohio artist Leandra Drumm this summer. About 12″ high, these mermaid, fairy and mother figures are a wondrous combination of whimsy and fine craftsmanship. The detailed forms are cast in pewter then combined with intricately etched glass gowns or mermaid tails. The garden fairy, for instance, offers a green glass “fruit” in her graceful, outstretched palms, while sunflowers grow across her green gown; the demure mermaids have tails of shimmering with geometric shapes and wild hair blowing in the ocean breeze.
