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 my 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.

Cacti prefer to completely dry out between waterings. Water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole and hits the roots for uptake to stem. Sunny to partial shade position outdoors, indoors in a very sunny position otherwise will lose their nice shape and become more open in growth. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter either inside in a bright, warm spot or sheltered outdoors and water sparingly, if at all, outdoors over winter. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
