Perfect Pots

By Alternativeeden @markngaz
Although we are keen outdoor gardeners we had often had a poor success rate with house plants, sometimes joking that rather than having green fingers we had the touch of death. This probably came from concentrating our efforts on the garden outside rather than those in the house.
In recent years however, this has changed. The main reason was the addition of a conservatory in the summer of 2013 and a new interest in growing plants in doors. Typically we have steered away from the more usual house plants, opting to grow several agave and aloes.
Of course with house plants, comes the need for pots. In the garden we have used a number of unusual pots or repurposed other objects for something more unusual. However in the house we have not always been able to find the perfect pot.
I'm sure we are not alone in wanting something a little different from the typical pots available, and neither are James and Eleanor at plant.furniture who fell in love with the styles from 1960s Germany. They have set out to bring back a number of these classic designs from the same factories as the originals.
They very kindly sent us the Fernand, amodern plant pot manufactured in Germany by Otto Keramik exclusively for them.
The Fernanda names means 'Adventurous' and features a very bright orange glaze poured on top of a light summery matt blue base as the glaze is applied by hand, each pot is totally unique.

An instant hit in out kitchen, with the vivid orange complementing the orange bull from Habitat.
As well as a number of other contemporary interpretations of mid century German style they also have a number of retro pots available for sale.

This really is a lovely piece, very well made, with great colours echoing the 60s, I'm sure one or two more of their pots will find a way into our home, and with prices from just £12 these instant classics will not break the bank.
