Custom Terracotta Portrait Planter
to sponsor a tree at the El Lugar resort.
This superb succulent planter is made from a slab or hand-folded terracotta clay and features a portrait of the person or pet of your choosing. Based on a photograph, the image is hand carved in the clay using the sgraffito technique for a rustic, earthy feel.
Complete with a drainage hole in the bottom, this crafty custom pot is just what your window sill is missing.
*Please send a portrait photo to be carved on the planter via email or by messaging me right here on Etsy.*
