Pottery for house plants

javaandjazz(z6 CT)June 12, 2010

Seems like there is not a good selection of house plant pottery that I've seen lately. Home Depot & Lowes doesn't have anything exciting this year.

Do you have any recommendations for where I can drive in CT to find a large variety of pottery options... both smaller and larger pots.

I'm located in CT. Thanks.

Hobby Lobby, maybe?

Here in NY I find that the small nursery has a great selection of beautiful pottery.

Have you tried searching in your general area for people who are actual potters and may sell or will create exactly what you're looking for? Are there any craft type villages/areas? I did a general google and came up with a non profit organization that lists a studio directory of different artisians sites, several are listed for Connecticut, possibly one of them might be of help:

Here is a link that might be useful: Studio Listing

Another thing to look for is a pottery class. Even if you don't want to try and make your own there are sometimes persons there who take the class to use the equipment and will make pottery to your specifications for a price. Look for classes somewhere that they have a kiln. The kiln will attract serious armatures and semi-professionals.

Good privately owned garden centers will carry nice pots. Also look in the home decor outlets. Forget the big box stores for anything unique or interesting.

that students are willing to sell...
