Orb Planter Small - Soapstone

Regular price $45.00

A sculptural beauty and just the right size to fit on your windowsill.

This style/size has a high polish black finish.

Carved by hand with a lot of love out of soapstone that is naturally a medium grey where it is mined in India.  The artisans apply a black wash of color over the stone that darkens it to a rich black finish. They then let that cure and set, polish it and apply butcher’s wax over the whole planter to seal it.  A drainage hole at the bottom will keep your plants happy. Soapstone is non-porous so will not create efflorescence (salt migration to the surface as with terracotta).

 

Details:

  • Approximately 3 ½” wide x 4 ¼” high
  • Designed in Brooklyn by M+A NYC

Care:

  • To clean stone use cold water and a soft clean rag and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  • Apply butchers wax to the soapstone periodically to maintain the finish. Butchers wax can be found at most hardware stores.
