Large blue handmade two part plant pot
Two-part plant pot from the “Block” series by Marimasot in Barcelona- the top and base are interchangeable with other pieces in this series.
Crafted by hand in Barcelona by American-born and Barcelona-based artist and designer Marissa McInturff. Taking inspiration from coastal landscape of the Mediterranean, the collection is colourful, sculptural and artistic. Each piece is lovingly handmade in Barcelona.
Handmade from unglazed Catalan stoneware and pigment
Measures approximately 25-28cm height x 12-14cm diameter
Can be used as a plant pot or a decorative object Most pieces are thrown from a sandy-textured, high grog clay that remains slightly porous after firing.
This makes them perfect for plants, as the roots can breathe easier. When it's time to water the plant, carry the top part to a sink or other area where it can drain free, and let the water run out before replacing it on the base. The base of the two-part plant pot is designed to catch a few drips, but not to hold a lot of water - it could leak out. For this reason, it's not recommended using your two-part plant pot as a vase. The pieces are dishwasher safe, though spot cleaning with a sponge or brush will do the job just fine.
The pieces are wheel thrown in small batches. For this reason, pieces will vary slightly and show signs of their handmade nature.
