In a world where we spend the bulk of our time indoors, it’s more important than ever to bring the outdoors in. Biophilic experiences have been proven to encourage creativity, reduce stress, increase productivity and improve cognitive function. Created exclusively for our collection with local earth, these slow made planters feature unique markings from the pit fire process, a bottom hole for drainage, and pair perfectly with our handmade snack plates for placing below.
Our award-winning master artisan partner has been producing custom pottery works for over 37 years. While her mother showed her the basics of working with clay, she is self-taught, and divides her time between creating her masterpieces, and teaching art at a local school. These pottery works are a crucial element to the local culture in her community and have been made in the region for thousands of years. Every custom work is created with local clay, then slowly pit fired over the span of six hours – a process that results in durable, elegant works that are supreme examples of Mexican artistry. In addition to pottery, this community is also well known for natural dyes, embroidery work and their brass bands.

Hand wash, and do not place in the dish washer or microwave. These pieces are food safe, however care should be taken to not place anything greasy inside or they may stain. They are meant for holding plants, however as the pieces are unglazed, natural pottery, they will sweat. We would suggest placing a protective plate under the piece initially, if you will be placing your plant on a surface that you would like protected, as the pieces also feature a bottom opening for drainage. With time and use, the piece will eventually develop a lovely patina due to the water filtration.
The price is for a single barro planter. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, markings, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image.
