Rough Yet Refined: Planters from Denmark

Earlier this week we posted on Blomsterskuret, floral designer and potter Martin Reinicke’s shop in Frederiksberg, Denmark; we’ve been coveting his slab-cut planters ever since.

The planters are hand formed from earthenware clay and are available in brown, black, slate gray, green glaze, and sand white in a selection of sizes from Krukkeriet, his nearby studio. The studio carries everything from standard shape planters to bowls and wall pocket pottery; Reinicke also offers pottery customizable with childrens hand imprints or company logos.

Above: The Cube Pots are available in gray, brown, and white clay and are designed to save space on the windowsill; 125DKK (about $22) for the small size and 145DKK (about $26) for the large.

Above L: The Small Trumpet Pot in white and black clay features ball-feet and is made for small trees and traditional potted plants; 145DKK (about $26) each. Above R: Reinicke’s pottery customized with a child’s handprint.
