Ceramicist Helen Levi developed this hanging planter with leather ties exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile. The stoneware base will make a secure home for favorite plants, and the natural textures of raw stoneware and leather will warm up any room in your house.

A lifetime ceramicist, Levi has been making pots since she was a small girl, when she was enrolled in an after-school pottery course. She continued with the craft through high school and college, and taught many pottery courses over the years. “It’s the most familiar craft I know,” she relates. Levi continues to uses the same clay she first learned to work with, which comes from Pennsylvania. The glazes used for this planter are mixed by a small producer in New Mexico.

To make each planter, Levi throws a measured amount of clay on her wheel, and forms the pot by hand. After it has dried for one day, she trims the base. She then allows the pot to dry for several days. When it is thoroughly dried, the planter is bisque fired in a kiln. Then the piece is glazed and fired again. Finally, the leather ties are added on.

“My intention was to create a piece that was simple and neutral, with a small added element of interest,” says Levi about the design. “For this planter, it was the leather ties.” Although the planter is intended to house indoor greenery, it can have many other uses. “I actually think this planter would be really cute in your kitchen, hanging over the counter, as a place to hold garlic or onions,” suggests Levi. 

Use & Care

This planter requires no special care. If needed, the ceramic base can be hand washed and dried. Avoid getting the leather ties wet.
