Desert Island Pond Sculpture
Floating in a half-barrel is a desert terrarium. The terrarium has several cacti as well as a small bone, snake skin, and a lava rock for additional effect.
I have several goldfish in the barrel and water lilies. This is the second summer for the floating island, third for the gold fish, and all seems to be doing well. I take most of it inside for the winter.
The terrarium was an old globe from a 1970’s light fixture. The cap I did myself with low-fire clay.
The sun strikes the island quite directly at times, but I think the water helps keep things cool.
