Small red Lake Superior planter
This small 3" x 3" planter has drainage holes and an attached base. It is made from red and white stoneware clay. It is glazed with a clear glaze.
Important: this is a handmade item. Dimensions can vary slightly. Each piece is special and unique.
It is made with lead-free, food safe glaze and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Each planter is carefully created on the wheel. I trim the planter to give it a better finish and then attach it to the base. Every piece of pottery goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the pottery is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the pottery and load the kiln for the next fire. For this fire the temperature is higher, 2232° F. It brings resistance and turns it into a non-absorbent item. Once cooled, the bottom is sanded for a smooth finish.
