A good plant pot has not only the function of showcasing the beauty of a plant, but also that of welcoming and supporting it. The ceramist Xènia Bas founded her own brand of ceramics under this approach, which she applies to each one of her creations, molding them with special attention to the plant that will inhabit them.

In this course you will not only learn about pots, but also about plants, their needs and how to take care for them. Xènia will teach you the ceramic techniques to make various types of pots, taking into account the peculiarities of each plant on a functional and aesthetic level.

Before taking this course, we encourage you to learn from her previous course, Creation of Molds for Ceramic Reproduction, which will be very useful when applying knowledge about the use of molds.
