New York City-based plant design and delivery shop The Sill designed this pot and plant as an easy-to-care-for way to bring life to any room. Each pot is handcrafted through the skilled technique of slipcasting, where clay is hand-poured, -trimmed, -brushed and -glazed after drying. Taking inspiration from the plant expert August Weberbauer, The August’s design is simple, stylish and pairs with any plant (or sill!).
