We are a bit in love with Black Dog Pottery. It’s Fernando’s fault – we saw him on Instagram, and immediately swooned at his moustachio-ed magnificence.
And the more you mosey around her planters, the more you fall in love with their adorable characters, and elegantly classy lines. Why on earth woudl you ever put your house plants in a dull old boring plant pot ever again, when you can have one of these in your living room?
That happily sleepy little face. Love him. And those feet!
But it’s not all achingly-stylish hipster white pottery y’know. Oh no. If it’s a splash of colour you’re after, then you might prefer these babies…
Ans it’s not just weirdly-addictive little faces on planters either. Oh no – if a looser, fluid style is more your thing, then there’s something for you too.
So I got in touch with Lindy, the crazily talented artist behind the quirky planters, and interviewed her (when I say ‘interviewed’, what I really mean is ‘fired stupid questions at her’) for the LittleStuff magazine (out now – see it here if you’re not already subscribed). And while we were chatting, she wondered if you lot would like to win a planter.
You’ll be pleased to know I bit her hand off.
So – here’s your chance to win a one-off artisan planter hand thrown in the Black Dog Pottery. You get to choose between a Fernando Planter (that’s Mr Moustache, up top) or a small Footie Face Pot (like Mr Sleepy in the middle). To enter, just use the magic widget below – closing date is the 14th of December, and the first name out of the cyber hat wins. Good Luck!
