I was commissioned to make a large hand built planter for siblings who had recently lost their mother. She loved gardenias and this pot was going to hold their mum’s ashes and a gardenia in her honour. It was my honour to create this piece for them. This is a short video of smoothing the surface as I add each new coil.
