Modern Planter in Charcoal
Please join the wait list for this variant.
These simple, striking Modern Planters are designed by Bloomist and handmade from local terra cotta by artisans at the Atuto Group in Honduras exclusively for us. They’re designed as a cachepot and textured with a matte charcoal finish that dramatically enhances and complements all kinds of foliage. Leave the plant in its grow pot and drop into the planter. Or plant it directly, being sure to add a small foundation of pebbles to create proper drainage.
A former Peace Corps volunteer from North Carolina, Holland Millis has worked with skilled craft-workers in Honduras for decades; his work there for Aid to Artisans merited coverage in the New York Times. Now, he leads the Atuto group in Sabanagrande, Honduras, which produces pieces made from clay, metal, stone, fiber, and wood — including the planters made from local terra cotta clay that Atuto now produces for Bloomist.
