How It's Made

This planter was hand thrown and molded from raw clay fired in traditional kiln heated naturally by wood and brush. A common technique used by indigenous ceramicist of Mexico. This traditional process & attention to detail has allowed this vintage terracotta planter to retain its durability and resiliency despite it's antiquity and exposure to the elements for decades. Mother nature has provided the durable, natural, and authentic finish.

Decades of exposure to the elements and oxidization has transformed the terracotta surface to an array of earthen colors from dusty Umber & smokey taupe to shades of slate, with spots of ash white, & smokey beige. A natural color variation as shown in the photos. There are some areas of mild deterioration which have not compromised the structure of this sculptural pot rather they add to the vessels personality & authenticity.
