So, Gadora started this new gig last week. And it’s a good one. Sadly my head is spinning from all the things I’m having to grasp now, and in a hurry: Mac to PC formats, spreadsheets, and that dizzying phone system with all those fancy buttons. Thought I’d take a moment to muse about something that makes more sense… good design, incorporating craniums. Besides it’s an ongoing nod to my love of mannequins…
Getting a head start on spring, Gadora first spotted these pretty planters on Instructables. LilMama wants to know how to make her own flower heads… and I do loves me some succulents.
ClayFlower22’s Phaedra, 5.5 inches tall with head circumference of 12 inches, “is perfect for a small ivy or succulent. I am a modern doll planter. I have a drain holes for good plant health and would look perfect on your wall.”
To put more ideas into your head… here are a few wicked little baby head planters in slip cast stoneware covered in a glossy white glaze by Etsy artist Michael McDowell. Check out his blog mudpuppy to see pics on how he does it.
For a table top display, these “Little Joseph” hand-painted porcelain candle holders, by designer Maxim Velčovskare, are border-line creepy. But rather charming, no?
For something even smaller, Gadora has her eyes on the Mr. and Mrs. Muse Salt & Pepper shakers by Jonathan Adler.
