This  planter is approximately 8 cm x 8 cm (3" x 3").

Description: Ceramic wheel thrown planter made with red stoneware clay and glazed with slate 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 create a rounded bottom .  Every planter goes through two firings in my kiln. The first firing is called a bisque fire: the planter is cooked, but it is still porous to absorb glaze. After this fire, I glaze the planter 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.
