Wild Clay Planter

Planter stands 4.25″ tall and will accommodate a 4″ pot. Three drainage holes in the base.

A mile from the WheatonArts campus, beneath the beautiful sands of Southern New Jersey, lies a pure, bright orange stoneware clay body. “New Jersey Ruga Clay” was named after the property owners of the land where the clay is mined. Once the clay has been dug from the earth, it is processed by hand, shaped on the pottery wheel, and fired in a natural gas kiln, to solidify. The bright orange color of the clay comes from the substantial amounts of iron in it. In the kiln firing, this iron darkens, speckling through the glaze colors and turning the clay a deep brown when finished. During the processing stage, the clay is so incredibly pure, and so well compacted, it never has to be screened.
