African Violet pot (alligator)
Some people have trouble with their African Violets, because the soil needs to be moist at all times. Not dry, not overwatered, but moist. This self-watering African Violet pot can help if you’re having trouble with your soil – the water will slowly seep through the unglazed portion of the pot, and when the glazed portion is out of water, simply refill! Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy! And whether you’re a Florida Gator fan, or an alligator fan, this guy is going to bring a smile to your face.
The bottom portion is fully glazed inside and out, and the top portion (wherein you put the soil and plant) is only glazed around the top, leaving the bottom clear and able to soak up water.
This pot is glazed with non-toxic glaze, and can be cleaned with warm soapy water.

I learned ceramics like an old-school apprentice, at the feet of my grandmother who had a studio in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the pieces I make are from now-vintage molds that she bought then. My pieces are unique, hand painted, and proudly made in my own home studio. While I do own the majority of the molds for the ceramics I make, I did find this piece in greenware (post-pouring, pre-firing). I cleaned it, fired it in my kiln, glazed it, and fired it again.
