The Tamago Planter was the first design produced by our studio.
This planter is made from a white stoneware clay which is mixed with NZ iron sand to give a speckled appearance.
The process of making a Tamago Planter starts by wedging clay into balls which are then thrown on the potter's wheel to form cylinders. The signature Tamago legs are then attached using a slab building method. Each piece is set aside to slowly dry before being fired twice in an electric kiln. The first firing is called the Bisque Firing which removes the moisture from the clay. The second firing is known as the Glaze Firing, this firing reaches a top temperature of 1200oC. The planter is finished with a light sand to give the surface a smooth matte finish.
The planter comes with a 16mm drainage hole in it’s base. We recommend plants are watered either outdoors, over the kitchen sink, shower or bath and allowed to fully drain before returning them to their indoor position. A no hole variant and custom sizes are available on request via the enquiries section of our website.
Approximately 25 cm high.
