Orb Planter Medium - Soapstone

Regular price $85.00

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

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 light black wash of color over the stone that darkens it to a soft black finish. They then let that cure and set and apply butcher’s wax over the whole planter to seal it. The end result is a very low luster/matte finish that is a great neutral backdrop to allow your plants to shine. 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).


  • Approximately 4” wide x 6 1/2” high
  • Designed in Brooklyn by M+A NYC

  • 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.
