Wheel thrown stoneware blend planter glazed in my handmade white and gray glazes. Stoneware makes these glazes look more rustic, so expect more mottling and texture. Has one drainage hole. Plants deserve home makeovers too, don't you think?
Measures 4 inches tall x 4.5 inches wide.
Always Hand Made: All items are one-of-a-kind, and thrown by hand so small variations my occur and add to the item's uniqueness and beauty.
Why wheel-thrown? Handmade pottery is to me a testament of slow living and quality - art that can stand the test of time and be used daily. Throwing pots on the wheel is a surprisingly long and special process. Each piece begins with a humble ball of clay, which is altered and shaped while spinning on the wheel at a constant and intentional speed. After the piece has dried to the ideal leatherhard stage it's placed back on the wheel where I trim away any excess and finish the base. Every pot goes through two kiln firings - the first to reach the bisque stage and the second once it's been glazed with my handmade glazes.
Care: Dishwasher safe, although handmade ceramics will always benefit from a gentle touch.
Handmade in Hillsboro, Oregon.
