Stoneware Planters - Ingrid Tufts and Cool Cactus (July 2017)


You may not realise it yet, but you are very familiar with Ingrid Tufts’ ceramics.  Yes, you have sipped coffee from her cups at establishments such as Cumulus Inc, Dukes Coffee Roasters and Auction Rooms (you can also add The Windsor Workshop to that list – custom made thank you very much); you have seen her pieces in Donna Hay, Safari Living and Koskela; you have seen her collaborate with artists such as Katherine Bowman and Michaela Bruton AND she has been an Official Merchandise partner for Opera Australia.  Now that is what I would call an impressive ‘projects’ list!  And now you can meet this wonder woman of porcelain powers at The Windsor Workshop making stoneware pots for plants (including hanging pots and saucers) - create an instant indoor garden or perhaps an outdoor oasis is just what your home needs…

PLUS this time we are excitedly pairing with Cool Cactus who will bring your STONEWARE PLANTERS to life - like, literally.  Each participant will receive 3 small succulents to plant directly into their planters, as well as potting tips and care instructions.  Instant ‘shelfie’ right there folks!
