Nice work!
What would you feed them on? Panda-Pops? Bamboo-shoots?

Some of the ducks seem to be wearing hats.

sRose, you can't tell me you couldn't make a spectacular ceramic duck. I know you could, and it would be spectacular because it would be a duck from your perspective. Same goes for Factotum. Hmmmm, perhaps you and Facto could start a garden duck craze...

Glad the World of Ducks has found an appreciative audience. ;)

These are indoor ducks & sorry to disapoint, but the market is already amply supplied with ceramic garden ducks - also geese. There's a gap in the market for turkeys but it's surely no more than a niche...

Canada has some fairly spectacular garden ornamentation of its own - I checked. Faux-ethnic windchimes, those depressing assortments of welded junk that pretend to the status of sculpture & any amount of cement or ceramic woodland creatures. You are not safe, SR, not safe at all...

Facto - of course some have hats, how else could we tell which are the gentleman ducks?

I adore these; they had them at the Christmas market and I wanted to buy them all (then set them free) ... lovely.

H, I did research and their website says they do garden things, so I assumed some ducks would be included.

as for Canadian and basically all impulses to add 'things' to a garden, why is it all so consistently so-bad-it-could-be-good? I shall share my own garden 'art' next post.

caine, thanks for the vote of confidence, but I haven't made anything that looked like anything in years. I tried penguins. awful, just awful.
