Wheel thrown using a buff clay base which is then bisque and glaze fired to create unique stoneware for plants. Each PK Handmade Ceramic piece is handmade in our home studio and paired with a plant suitable for the vessel shape and size and aesthetic consideration of habit, form and glaze colour. We use a quality potting-perlite mix that is top dressed with small river pebbles.

In the warmer, growing months for cacti, water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole then leave until soil dries out before watering again. In winter, whilst dormant, keep cacti dry, warm and protected in a bright, direct sunlight position, indoors and outdoors. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
