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. Their quality work has allowed this 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 exterior terracotta surface to an array of earthen colors from peachy-terracotta and slate adobe to ash white and smokey beige. A natural color variation as shown in the photos.
