Recently spotted: playful, chic planters, made from red clay sourced in Galicia, Spain, and hand-thrown and -painted in Barcelona. The brand behind them, Casa Atlântica, was founded in 2014 with the goal of reviving and preserving the craftsmanship of artisans in Galicia and Portugal.
“Our philosophy is based on offering contemporary products while promoting local crafts and also giving priority to rural production through small family workshops located in small villages and towns of Galicia and Portugal.”
Casa Atlântica’s colorful and graphic terracotta planters are what we’re particularly enamored with. They’re available for purchase via their website to Europeans; here in the US, the pots are sold at the MoMA Design Store.
