Personalized Portrait Pottery Planter
This beautiful cacti planter is made of a folded slab of terracotta stoneware, it makes best housewarming gift. It is a ceramic plant pot decorated with a carved portrait, self-portrait or someone's you love. It can be a pet's portrait as well.
Like a folded piece of paper, it is folded to hold your choice of plant. While the clay form was leather hard I carved the 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.
