Clove, one of our most popular styles is now available
with holes as an orchid pot.

It is a gently curved, almost-cylinder like pot, which is a little wider at the top than at the bottom. 

This is a perfect starter pot for an orchid. Orchids thrive in most soils but you never want them to be sitting in water. The carefully placed holes all around our orchid pots allow the air to reach the roots. It is thrilling when you see healthy lime green roots peeking through the holes!

If you love the earthy quality of terracotta then our signature Soft-as-Silk pots will make you very happy.
The rich surface of our Soft-as-Silk clay pots are smooth to the touch, with a subtle but beautiful patina.

We use a labor-intensive process to achieve this unique surface. We apply a double layer of terracotta wash onto each handmade pot, and then burnish every piece with our hands. This flattens all the clay particles and creates the softest raw-clay surface possible. Finally we fire the pots in an electric kiln to 1960 degrees Fahrenheit.

Our Soft-as-Silk pots are less porous than regular terracotta pots due to the seal created by the clay wash. This means don’t have to water quite as often as with most raw terracotta. Don’t forget to add a saucer for each pot to your order to catch water.

Please Note: Each planter is hand made by real people in Dallas TX. 
Sizes are approximate; embrace the slight differences in shape, size and color that are the result of human hands and natural materials.
