Beautiful Plant Pots from Putikmade

You can never have enough ceramic vessels. At least this is true in Sweden, where most every windowsill is covered in potted plants (we have wide sills due to thick house walls). Here is a nice addition that would dress any indoor space (or outdoor for that matter).

Co-owners Cynthia Vargas and Jennifer Friend run LA-based Putikmade, making pottery from black mountain clay and porcelain. The stoneware clay turns deep brown after high firing and each pot is handmade on the wheel, making each piece unique. For more information, visit Putikmade.
