MEXICAN MOSAIC MACETAS (FLOWER POTS) > SOLD
SOLD

Price: No Price
Availability: SOLD

Gray, red and tan Mexican mosaic flower pot with ceramic heart and vintage pottery pieces from a 1940s broken Tonala pot.  Including the face of a sweet little white deer. Last two photos show some of my "raw material."
 
5" diam. x 3 7/8" tall
 
Pot has a drainage hole.
 
PROCESS:  Hand-cut pottery pieces and tiles were applied to a terra cotta pot.  The pot was grouted and then sealed with a professional grade sealant to resist water and stains.  Pot was wiped clean and tiles were buffed with a soft cloth.
 
RECOMMENDED USE:  To ensure many years of use, I recommend placing your plant in a plastic container before putting it into the flower pot. The pot should be brought indoors in freezing temperatures or in periods of extended rain.  Hand-cut tiles sometimes have sharp edges so please handle with care.
 
Happy growing!
 
NOTE FROM TRINIE:    I collect Mexican folk art and Mexican pottery.  Through the years, thanks to an accident or two, I have amassed a few broken pieces that I am now incorporating into my mosaics.  See last photo.  The old Mexican shards are getting a nueva vida (new life).  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
 
Shipping within U.S.:  Free.  All others, please inquire.
