Shroomyz are handcrafted and hand painted ceramic mushrooms by JJ Potts in Utah. They are stunning works of art (yes, you can call fungi a work of art) created for your garden and home.
As ceramic art work, Shroomyz bring instant color to your garden. Their colors are brilliant brights and always eye catchers. Intense colors have always been a passion of ours and you can see it throughout the artwork in our site.
Shroomyz, Mushroom Art for your Garden
Who thought that Ceramic Garden Art could be so much fun? Our Ceramic Garden Art Collection of decorative mushrooms for your Garden comes in an incredible array of colors. Each color is vibrant and bursting with life - fun to look at, energizing and rejuvenating!
Our hand painted ceramic garden mushrooms come in 5 different sizes, no two are alike - each one is a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Fantastic and Funtastic Colors
With colors like grenadine, rainforest, strawberry creme and calypso, each stunning art work is unique and different on its own!
The color of the stem is always off-white, a little like white aspargus.
About our stunning colors:
JJ Potts does follow a color-scheme, but not all colors have a real name. Caps always have a base color. The base color is paired with color spots that complement the base. Here is how we describe the colors:
Each mushroom is formed from ceramic clay. The color of the stem is always off-white, a little like white aspargus. The end of the stem is pointed so you can easily insert your shroomy into your garden or flower pot.
Each stem is stamped with the artist's initials. JJ Potts has a team of artists that use their creativity and imagination to create each new mushroom. The initials MS, for example, stands for Micayla Sabine.
No two colors are alike and the sizes are all approximate. Sometimes, a stem is a little shorter but the cap is bigger and sometimes a cap is very small and the stem is longer. Sometimes, we have ceramic mushrooms with a similar color in different sizes. Our recommendation is to buy your shroomyz in different colors to truly see the range of beauty of the brilliant bright colors.

Ceramic clay pottery has been in use since centuries. "Keramicos" is the Greek word for ceramics and means "burnt stuff". The term tells us that the early Greeks discovered that clay, once heated (or burnt) at very high temperatures, changes its form and can be shaped in so many ways.
Our garden art is created by shaping clay into the form of our shroomy mushrooms - long and pointy stems with wide mushroom caps (depending on size). There are several stages to dry the clay, starting with a drying process in a kiln.
Once the clay is hard enough to the touch, JJ Potts' artists create their artwork on the shroomy caps. After the paint is dry, several layers of glaze are applied during another heating process.
The glaze does not just add to the shiny texture of the mushroom, it is also adding a protective layer.
The final step is called firing which is done inside a kiln. Firing causes the colors of the mushroom caps to melt and blend together. It also causes sometimes small cracks on the underside of the cap. In "technical terms": JJ Potts introduces air into the kiln during the last firing process. This oxidizing athmosphere causes the final blending and smoothing of the mushrooms, however, it's is not a complete smoothing process.
We always feel that there is a place for artwork in every home, no matter how small. If a small painting won't work for your home, our ceramic mushroom art will add that splash of color that makes every home so special.
