Small Geo Planter

PRODUCT DETAILS

The Geo Planter is a beautiful study of angles, texture and contrast. The complex geometric shape of this terracotta vessel is created by slipcasting: a process commonly used by ceramicists to create elaborate forms that couldn't be made using a traditional potters wheel. The wet clay is poured into a mold, the outer surfaces allowed to set and then the balance of the clay poured out, leaving the inner void accessible to air in order to dry. The pieces are then fired in a kiln and either glazed or left natural. Perfect for planting succulents, tillandsia or cacti, these beautiful planters make a unique design statement and are the perfect gift lovers of plants and indoor gardeners. each pot has a single drainage hole in the base and a saucer to catch overfill.

Made in Brooklyn, U.S.A

WHY WE LOVE THIS

Megumi Yoshida, a Japanese designer based in Brooklyn NY, has become known for her materially elegant and minimal ceramic forms. Working primarily with slip casting, her crisp porcelain designs, such as lamps, vases, and tableware, are poetic instances within her ongoing exploration of the medium. Her thoughtful dialog ranges between Japanese tradition and western modernism, becoming evident in objects that echo the soft reduction of Brancusi-like forms or the nature-inspired geometries of Japanese Kamon insignia. Yoshida’s works traverse the boundary between functional design and the self-sustained art object. Yoshida founded MGMY studio in 2007 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where she produces her work.
