/ˈməhkər/: Handmade in Canada
I was in Cafe Odin the other day in Toronto, where I spotted a beautiful terrarium on one of their counters. It inspired me to search out 10 cool planter designs (made in/sourced from Canada) I would want in my home via my favourite online marketplace: Etsy. I have seen a few of the designs in local stores or at designer markets always wishing I had more room at home to collect them. Right now I have to be VERY selective as to what comes into my home as we will be down sizing in September and have to really pare down our stuff to the bare essentials. I like the idea of potting succulents because in my experience – they are almost impossible to kill! I hope you enjoy this round up, happy potting!
I love all things concrete and I am especially loving the monochromatic blue tones on these little guys! So simple, yet so striking. Also, they are posted at a great price point. I would put these outside on my patio tables and gladly house them indoors as well.
The organic texture is very appealing, also I love the idea of stacking displays. I can imagine these hung in multiples to make a larger installation.
I remembered this designer from a market I participated in at 401 Richmond in Toronto a few years back. I really appreciate wood items and love the clean lines of this piece. This piece would probably double as a tea light holder (just incase you kill the succulent by accident…)
I really like ceramic planters and especially love hanging planters. The beautiful leather harness adds to the overall appeal of texture in this piece. It seems like the perfect material to cradle the soft ceramic bowl.
Felted vessels are one of my favourite things. I fist came across one at the OOAK show. Having done felting myself, I know it is a lot of work. I just love the natural textures in this piece – way better than your average plastic planter. This also makes it really easy to swap in another plant (should yours mysteriously die…)
This little guy is super cool! I love how the succulents make his hair-do.
I really like these terrariums. They would look cool on top of a giant coffee table book. I found different coloured moss at my local floral store that you could change up depending on your decor scheme. Even empty I would like to display these.
