Cast Concrete and Succulents

IMG_0572

As many of you know, I recently completed funding for a Kickstarter project. As part of fulfilling the orders, I’ve been making lots of plaster molds. The problem with mold-making is that you have to wait about a week for molds to dry before using them. So in the downtime waiting for my most recent mold to dry, I’ve been experimenting with casting concrete. I have a hunch that I’ll be able to make bigger self-watering pots with concrete, but I’ve got to learn how to use the material first.

Most of my prototypes so far are pretty ugly and / or structurally unsound. But I kind of like these miniature pots. They seem like especially good matches for mini succulents and my baby air plant pups. They’re a far cry from self-watering pots big enough for windowsill herbs, but it’s a start . . .
