Flower Pots From South Korea

I got these unique flower pots from a sister-in-law as a Christmas gift.

She is currently living in South Korea with her husband and daughters while he is stationed at an army base there.  She says these are made near where they live.  They make pots as tall as three feet in these shapes; but for shipping ease, she sent me this size.  They are clay with a glaze on the outside.  Her two oldest daughters picked out the shapes and they agreed on the paint so they'd go together.  


First, I thought they were vases for cut flowers.  Then, I saw the drainage holes.


I'm thinking a couple of new houseplants will get to live in them.

  3. Those would be great for a cascading plant--how thoughtful of her to send them.
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

  4. Those are nice. I thought the same thing, tall vases, but those are going to be great planters.

  6. You have received some wonderful looking flower pots. Since my mother in law moved into an apartment building, my inventory of flower pots have grown. Folks move around quite a bit in apartment living and when they more many times they give up flower pots and outside decorative items. Plant supports are another item that would end up in the dumpster if I didn't take them. It was certainly an unexpected benefit from her moving into an apartment.

    I planted some lettuce in a small container under grow lights in hopes of having a small fresh salad or two. It's just something to pass the time during the Winter months. Actual garden seed planting for the garden plants will start around February 1st. I did grow some awesome cabbages last year from seeds .... or so the rabbits thought. I'm planning on trying again this year with a little more protection from the those pesky rabbits.

    Have a great last of 2013 day.

  17. I like handmade pottery from around the world. I never luck out on shipping them though, having had them broken when they were received. S. Korea is a pretty exotic place to get a gift too. Not like many people visit I would think.
