Object of Desire: Hips Planters

July 26, 2017

Recently, when tracking the whereabouts of Tulita, a charming mobile greenhouse in Brooklyn, NY, I stumbled upon the garden shop’s summer 2017 collection of petite ceramic planters and fell for their simplicity. The pots’ charming dimples evoke a nude, painted by a master, or the curve of a ballet dancer’s arm. Here are Hips planters, designed for Tula House in Brooklyn:

The stoneware Hips collection is handmade by Rhode Island-based, Japan-trained ceramist Kelli Rae Adams. The collection was inspired by dance—the clay is even repurposed from a performance piece that Adams created with a choreographer and dance ensemble.

The planters are available in two sizes: Large Hips ($85) and Small Hips ($65).
