Bee Hive Terracotta Plant Pocket
These wall-mounted terracotta plant pockets have an impressed bee hive design with a several 3D bees visiting. They are ideal for small plants which are full of nectar, so busy bees can feed from them. Water can drain through the pot naturally once the soil has soaked, as there is no waterproof glaze layer.
The bee hive texture is created by impressing a repurposed bit of rubbish, a bit of rubber from a broken car mat. The bees are made using a little ceramic mould I made, using a metal bee that fell off a keyring I’d been using. It’s amazing what you can make using rubbish and broken things! The rough texture areas of the pot is made by rolling a fir cone around on the clay surface.
