Our Small, Happy, Family Company
Palmer Planter Company is a labor of love, established in early 2017 by two sweethearts. We are potters with uniquely different skills and a shared love of historical and contemporary pottery. All of our planters and garden accessories are made by hand, by us!
We are committed to sustainable manufacturing. We use renewable energy to fire our kilns, USA made recycled paper and cardboard to ship our pots.
At Palmer Planter Company we believe that objects are powerful. We surround ourselves with things that hold meaning, and bring comfort. We hope our pots help people grow roots and connect to the world.
What @thefernseed in Tacoma, Washington has to say about "Less Packaging". Spoiler alert: She is Talking about Us!!! :)
Our maker game is strong right now, and I like that. We’ve recently added work by @settlewell, @nightshiftceramics and @salamatceramics in addition to carrying now tried-and-true designs from @palmerplantercompany and @lbe.design. I love supporting these handmade and small batch makers for many reasons, but one that feels most important to me: they ship using less packaging. Across the board, none of our makers use styrofoam unless it’s absolutely necessary, sparingly, and usually biodegradable. Some nest pots together, packed with nothing but recyclable brown kraft paper... and nothing breaks! Compare this to some of the larger design houses we order from who ship each individual pot in a box with styrofoam... in a larger box with styrofoam.
In the coming months we’re working to reduce our footprint as a business as well as to better tell the stories of the makers behind the designs we have available in the shop. I’m so grateful to everyone who has made the conscious decision to support not only us but the artists and designers we sell in the shop. Thank you!
