Ceramic Succulent Planter
This beautiful succulent planter is made of a folded slab of gray clay, it makes the best housewarming gift. It is a small ceramic flower pot decorated with a carved bird.
Like an envelope, it is folded to hold your choice of plant. While the clay form was leather hard I carved the bird image using the sgraffito * technique. The interior of the pot is glazed.
The planter is without a drainage hole, so please place some pebbles in the bottom of the planter. This will keep the roots up out of any residual water and will help to keep your plant healthy.
