Ceramic Succulent Planter, Gray Pottery
I work out of my studio in Beersheba, Israel. My ceramic designs are inspired by Nature. This item is an example of what I have done in the past. Click on the “Visit my shop on Etsy” button to see what is currently in stock.
This beautiful ceramic succulent planter is made of a folded slab of gray clay, it is a beautiful home decor rustic planter.
A handmade ceramic planter pot for indoor or outdoor, which is perfect a succulent lovers gift.
Like an envelope, it is folded to hold your choice of plant. While the clay form was leather hard I carved the bird image using the sgraffito * technique. The interior of the pot is glazed.
The planter is without a drainage hole, so please place some pebbles in the bottom of the planter. This will keep the roots up out of any residual water and will help to keep your plant healthy.

I am Shelly, an art and nature addict 🙂 I create and design handmade ceramics.
I like experimenting with different techniques and constantly creating new designs.
I draw my inspiration from Mother Nature; I aim to bring nature inside, using materials that are sourced from nature and presenting images and objects which clearly represent it.
My goal is to create ceramics that not only meet the customers needs but also inspire some sense of nature.
Apart from ceramic work, I am also a great lover of yoga; I practice it regularly, finding my inner peace, one that inspires love and spirituality, aspects that play a large role in coming up with new designs. I also love baking and healthy food and believe that healthy fine food deserved to be served in dishes that bring out their best, and that is why I strive to make my customers ceramic pieces that will not only last but also appeal to their use.
One of my biggest influences is the sgraffito. The sgraffito is a form of decoration, typically done in plaster or stucco on walls, or in a slip, on ceramics, before firing.
Sgraffito is an Italian word meaning to scratch and create an image. Using the sgraffito technique I can create personalized images.
I make rustic dishes, tableware, home décor, clay baking dishes, coffee and teacups, flower vases, pots, and much more. My ceramics are known for their durability, originality, sophistication, authenticity, and of course, their beauty. I aim to provide my customers with items that are not only pleasing to the eyes but to the soul as well. The effort, attention to detail, and elegance brought out, make each item unique and a piece of art that represents reality. My customers’ satisfaction is my highest priority, I enjoy giving my customers the attention and service they deserve.
As part of caring for our planet, all my packing materials are recycled – sustainability matters to us all!
Fine handmade ceramics with a focus on Nature from Israel.
