Fiddlehead Fern


Fresh, young shoots from the ostrich fern emerge from the ground every spring and display a unique shape that resembles the scroll on a violin (or fiddle), giving these fern heads their name.
Cedar Creek Gallery Studio Artist Harrison Harper has recreated these early spring beauties in hand-blown glass for you to enjoy in your garden year-round!
The ferns are designed to be displayed on a rebar stake pushed into the ground. Every fern includes a 17.5" pre-cut length of rebar.

Choose from three different styles:

  • Dense Green
  • Light Green
  • Green Encased in Clear Glass

Since these ferns are hand-crafted, expect slight differences in size and design. In general, they range in size from 10" - 12" tall, and 3" - 4" wide at the "fiddlehead" top.

In 2004 Harrison began working with artist Lisa Oakley at Oakley Studio Glass. Two years later, he began working as a full-time glassblower but stepped back to be a stay-at-home dad when his first child was born.
