:: Ouch Planters

Pinch Pot Air Plant Hanger
 Tonight I reveal, my first set to Ouch Planters!

My return to clay has been very enjoyable and I have had loads of fun hand building these pieces, typically there are the usual losses to glaze faults and cracking but a bit more testing and I will get it right!
I'm very pleased with these two and I couldn't wait to show you!

A bit  of crazing, so I am looking into a different clay body.

Today's thrift find, a pair of Lotte candlestick holders

 This hanger was made from buff raku, it can take a small slow growing cactus or an air plant.
 The pattern style is inspired by Bitossi! (thanks MMMC xx)

The design was inspired by a Sunflower.



  1. They are both stunning...but I can't stop looking at the brown one. It won my heart right away.

  2. Thanks Dana, yes I feel the same way, it's the clay it's lovely to work with and lovely to look at! :)

  3. these are very cool...loving the grassy air plants...I quite like the crazing on the pot and the colour is perfect!

  4. Love, want, need(?), put me on your list please Pippa. Brown 'Bitossi' my fave.

  5. Oh my goodness, I agree, the brown one is amazing! And imagine, two little Figgjo Lotte pieces, made close to where I grew up, emigrated all the way to Australia:-)

  6. Hi Pippa, I love the colour of the glaze you're working with at the moment..a sea glass kind of look. It reminds me of a tropical beach with that really clear water that turns aqua as it gets deeper. The shapes of the brown ones are fantastic.

  7. I haven't had a chance to comment in a while but I thoroughly enjoy your energy and creativity! :)

  8. Really gorgeous ... I love the colour of the blue one ... and the little yellow beads are lovely ... Bee xx

  9. Love these. Great MCM inspiration.

  10. More beautiful work! These are stunning.

  11. Big smiles and thanks to you all! :)
