Here are a few of the little planters I did up so customers could get an idea of what they were for! They got a lot of comments, and were actually a pretty good seller! I might have to try planting some up with daffodil or crocus for the Christmas Bazaar.
A small fairly traditional bonsai pot I planted with Black Mondo Grass, Alyssum, and an orange scented creeping thyme. A possible use for some of the bonsai pots I had, as well as a visual aid for the kusamono pots! I like this one!
A pansy... This one has a nice blue flower, but, well, the blooms all fell off after I planted it! GAH! So its just a boring green plant. Oh well!
A blob of alyssum I planted to demonstrate how muck works... Eventually the muck (in this case white clay mixed with chopped sphagnum moss) will grow moss and be a nice green mound in the pot.
This one came out really well! The black mondo grass echos the charcoal grey from the pot very nicely! Admittedly, it'll probably outgrow the pot quickly, but the fact that I was running late sort of limited my choices! These are just some plants I had for the yard, but I like how this one came out.
Clay has always fascinated me, its many colors and textures, the shapes you can create using it, even the feel of it squishing in my hand. Even after years of playing in the mud I find myself exploring new ideas and I hope my work shows this.
