HOO HOOThese abstract owl sculptures by Tucson artist Greg Corman play an important role in nature. Made from scrap wood and found objects—including tin can lids and old jewelry—they have been drilled with tunnels to attract native bees for nesting. These beneficial creatures are important pollinators. The owls also come without holes. Find them at Practical Art, Phoenix, (602) 264-1414, or contact the artist at (520) 603-2703.

PRETTY AS A PICTURETucson artist Regina Lord uses her gift for color and love of nature to create unique works of art, including the garden themed Tortoise Ride (pictured). This 81/2" x 11" archival print was made from an original acrylic and is signed and dated by Lord. To see more of her work, log on to creativekismet.com.
BRIGHT IDEAGet hip with the Mezzo Mod Dish, a contemporary alternative for growing cacti. Made from partially salvaged metal with an optional drainage hole, the shallow vessel eliminates the need for excessive soil and water. Ideal for indoor/outdoor use and available in five colors, the powder-coated containers can be found at Arizona-based shopboxhill.com.
