Planter with Saucer and Altered Rim -Aqua Green Octopus – 4 inch


These wheel thrown and altered planters are part of my exploration of a “more is more” aesthetic. Each of the four sides has it’s own unique decoration that all work together to make a super fun and totally one-of-a-kind piece of functional art for the home. My new screen printing technique means I can now print animals in different colors, and I so excited to experiment with it. (This green octopus is more subtle than my usual black outline but looks gorgeous in person.)

This wheel-thrown, handmade ceramic planter is just right for a succulent or any other indoor plant. Drainage hole and coordinating saucer make for easy plant care and added cute factor. Plant directly in the planter or insert a potted plant for instant greenery in the home.

Smallish. Approx 4.5″ wide by 3.75″ tall.

This handmade ceramic planter is intended for ease of use to help beautify your desk, shelves, and windowsills. This planter was hand thrown on a potter’s wheel in my Easthampton, Massachusetts studio.

Drainage and plant care: The planter includes drainage holes and a matching saucer for water drainage. To help guard against overwatering, first pour gravel or pebbles into the bottom of the planter, before adding soil.

Process: Each piece begins as white stoneware clay. First, the clay is thrown by hand on the potter’s wheel, forming the shape. Following a bisque firing in the kiln, the piece is hand-decorated using a combination of hand-drawn underglaze transfer and slip-painting. Then the piece is hand-dipped in a clear glaze and fired once more in the kiln to make the finished product.

Note: Plant not included. Minor imperfections, variations, and quirks are part of the unique, one-of-a-kind nature of using handmade items.
