Pottery In The Garden

Posted by Dani on June 29, 2014

Just spending a sunny summer day hanging some pottery in the garden and thought I’d share some shots.

Most potters I know have gardens full of their rejects. I’ve had lots of that over the years, but lately I’ve actually been making some pieces with the intention of leaving them outdoors. It’s a nice way to add a little colour here and there.

For those of you who throw a little clay around yourselves, these are all made with high fired porcelain clay. That means they’re fairly strong and durable, and do well outdoors.

I made a series of hearts, inspired by my visit to the Austrian Alps last year, where they tuck little decorative hearts everywhere. If you look at my photos here, you’ll see what I mean. Hearts everywhere.

This one is right by my front door. It’s decorated with old batik stamps that my sis hauled back from India.

And this is a little one that I tucked under the eaves.

And then I made a series of flowers, because you can’t have too many flowers.

And just for fun, here’s a reject sitting in my ex-mint garden, which you can read about here if you want to know hot NOT to plant mint.

There’s a bunch more coming out of the kiln shortly. I’m going to be playing with adding some rope and hanging those old-school style, inspired by some 70s macramé crafts. Stay tuned!

You can read more about my pottery hearts here. And if you want to see a few other things I’ve made, have a look at my daisy bowl, my appetizer plates, and a few more pieces here.
