The Tamago Planter was the first design produced by our studio.
It's simple form is created using a series of complex curves.
The 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 working the clay into round balls which are then thrown on the potter's wheel to form cylinders. The signature Tamago legs are then attached and the pot is set aside to slowly dry. Once dry, the pot is fired twice in the kiln, a process that vitrifies the clay making it strong and watertight. Each pot is then given a light sanding to give the surface a smooth matte finish. Although the making process for each pot is identical, no two pots are the same.
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.
