Living in Wisconsin, NOBODY carries decent decorative containers to plant succulents or cactus in. Even if there is terra cotta available, it's just the plain old flower pots. I've looked on line, but the prices plus shipping are outrageous. I finally tried to make one out of polymer clay just to test and see if it works. I made matching "pebbles" to put on the top of the soil too.

I like it a lot, the shape is organic and the color is perfect. Good work!

Thank you Jonna. If it works out well I'll definitely be making more for my collection of small cactus.
