Any plant would be happy as Larry to be displayed in this rustic handmade planter & saucer but it’s ideal for kitchen herbs.

I threw two balls of clay onto my potter's wheel and carefully shaped into a the plant pot and saucer shapes. Cut off the wheel with a wire and put to one side until 'leather hard'. They were then put back on the wheel, upside down and the bases fettled and the holes for drainage cut. The planter and saucer were left to dry out completely before it was fired for 24 hours in my electric kiln. Once cooled down the plant pot was hand painted with a speckled white glaze, the inside left unglazed to help with drainage. The saucer is glazed in a chalky white. They were finally fired a second time to 1200 degrees.

You'll need to pop in your own basil. 

My potter's mark is on the side of the pot and the base of the saucer.
