Chalky White Hanging Planter

Ready to Ship

Any plant would be happy as Larry to be displayed in this rustic little handmade hanging planter.

I threw a ball of clay onto my potter's wheel and carefully shaped into a round bowl shape. Thrown thinly making it light and perfect for hanging. It was cut off the wheel with a wire and put to one side until 'leather hard'. It was then put back on the wheel, upside down and the base fettled, the spiral design added and the holes for the twine cut. The planter was left to dry out completely before it was fired for 24 hours in my electric kiln. Once cooled down it was dipped into a chalky white glaze, the inside left unglazed to help with drainage. It is finally fired a second time to 1200 degrees making it super strong. The planter comes with 50cm, 20 inches of 3ply rustic jute hanging twine.

This ceramic planter would make a lovely house warming gift - you'll just need to pop in your own succulent or cacti. 

My potter's mark is on the base.

Dimensions (approx):
Height: 6cm, 2 1/2 inches
Diameter: 12cm, 4 3/4 inches

Made using lead free glazes.
Hanging planter sold without plant.
