GUY WOLFF POTS

People.

Surely we’ve all noticed that houseplants are a ‘thing’ again.

I’m on board, of course,

but, sadly, one of our naughty kitties thinks they’re SALAD.

Thankfully, there’s an excellent Plan B,

+ that would be the deliciously realistic-but-faux plants that are available now.

Get thee to IKEA, where I bought these faux lavender plants,

which are now nestled in my beloved Guy Wolff pots on our kitchen window sill.

Let’s talk a little bit about these awesome pots.

Here’s the fabulous potter, Guy Wolff . . .

. . . whose Bantam, CT studio is on my ‘must-visit’ list**

(more on that later!)

His pots are stamped with his name, the date,

+ the number refers to the wet weight pounds of clay used to make the pot.

I bought this pair in the year 2007 (obviously)

at the late, great Smith + Hawken store in Geneva, Illinois.

I bought my very first Guy Wolff pot in a wonderful store called Hammertown,

in the Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts.

No doubt we’ll be stopping there again on our way to see Guy Wolff in Connecticut.

This inaugural pot of mine is currently buried somewhere in our potting shed,

so I can’t share right now, but it looks something like this one:

Are our heads spinning yet?

If not, here are dozens more on Guy Wolff’s Pinterest board!

Perhaps, like me, you’ll be wanting to purchase his book.

You can buy Guy Wolff pots at his studio**, on his website

+ at various shops around the U.S.

**My planned visit to see said studio will no doubt be very soon,

+ here’s why:

We bought this ‘canned ham’ cutie on eBay this week!!!

We’ll drive to southern Illinois on Sunday to retrieve it,

after which we’ll perform a little re-do

+ then set sail for somewhere — anywhere — sunnier + warmer than here!

Stay tuned!
