Recycled Pottery: Orchid Pots
June 4, 2009 § 2 Comments
The studio is filling up with pots and odds and ends! It’s been 6 months since i started really using the pottery wheel here, and making is so fulfilling for me, I throw and throw and throw, so there is so much lying around. There are also many pots that have something or other wrong with them… a cracked bottom, too heavy, chips, yicky glaze bits… and I finally found something to do with them!
On visiting Sungai Buloh with Captain Karat last week, I chanced on a brood of baby orchids in wee pots. Now, these babies have new homes for their roots to grow into 🙂
Meet them one by one:
The pots with holes at the bottom will definitely work. For those that do not have bottom holes (eek!), I’ll have to be careful not to overwater.
