June 2016 Pots for Plants

Postby Liz M » Thu Jun 09, 2016 4:38 pm

'Pots for Plants', I'm looking for a pot that makes the plant look even better than if it were in a plain plastic or clay one.

Though I'm pretty sure this is not what you had in mind - the pot is nice but nothing extraordinary - it is not clay nor plastic.

Gibbaeum velutinum white form together with Cymbalaria muralis and Oxalis cf. articulata. Heavy, glazed pot which allows me to have these plants in full sun (and wind).

Hello Liz :-)
My partner is a sculptor, and i asked him to make some pots for me. Here are some examples.

Sadly, not many entries this month. Was the subject too difficult or were we all too busy looking after our plants? I'll give this to John Dos, who can perhaps come up with a subject to inspire everyone.

Oh - I don't feel like I deserve it. Just wanted to break the ice with that first photograph. There are so many gorgeous pots, pots alone and fantastic combinations with plants; Medusa-like Graptopetalum or Aeonium topping a pot with a face, Lions with spiny mane ... or just perfect hand made pottery.

Well, I'll try.
