Last week’s trip to Terrain got me on another plant kick, so I’ve had plant markers on the brain. My summer flowers always croak this time of year, and I’ve got a new collection I’m hoping to nurse through the colder temperatures. These beautiful plant markers from Just Potters caught my eye because of their simple, earthy feel. But when I heard about the organization’s mission, I enjoyed them so much more.
Just Potters is a Vancouver-based non-profit organization that aims to provide studio space, instruction, support and employment opportunities to people in the neighborhood who, due to economic or social barriers, have no access to a creative space. I watched a video about the group (I embedded it below if you’re interested) and was reminded again of the deep emotional ties people often have to this particular medium. Needless to say, it makes me appreciate the pottery even more to know the stories behind the people making it. Click here to shop their pottery online. The plates are particularly stunning; I love their smooth, organic feel. xo, grace
