Slip-cast Ceramic planters. Crafted Ceramics for discerning plant-lovers.
We are Monstruosus; we craft simple, purposeful, indoor and outdoor slip-cast clay pots.
Mother Nature’s hand sometimes lends a wildibeauty to some of her creations. This includes the Monstruosus; a variety of cactus whose forms grow with a natural deformation. At Monstruosus, we love plants in all their differences. Similarly, in its twisted nature, we appreciate the majesty of the plant world; its randomness and surprise.
Our designs honor a strong lineage of Mid-Century American ceramic craftsmanship. The timeless proportions of the world’s best architecture; be it classical, modern or contemporary informs our DNA. Good Design is central to who we are. It is why we exist.
It is our mission to sweat the details, in design and production. Additionally, we strive for our planters to stand the test of time and trends. Each of our models is patiently handcrafted by skilled casters. With this philosophy in mind, Monstruosus planters are designed as simple and purposeful.
Chemically speaking, clay is just “dirty glass”. But from start to finish, our process is nothing but pure. Monstruosus ceramics are slip-cast from clay, mined as close as possible to its source. By doing this, we minimize the accumulation of minerals that would otherwise taint its pure white base. Once the clay arrives at our studio, we pay close attention to many variables that could affect its elasticity. Some of these include: the season, daily temperature and humidity, in addition to the clay’s fluctuating chemical makeup. Our casters use their sixth sense, or what some may call, “caster intuition” to respond to these qualities. Each piece is hand crafted to ensure our planters are consistently and durably formed, sculpted, fired, and refined. Outdoor clay ceramic pots
