This piece was made with the intention of being functional and educational to share the different names and structures of root systems. It felt fitting to relay the information on a planter like this as if the images on the planter were showing you what was directly inside it. This ceramic planter was slip-cast in porcelain and inlaid with colored slip to create the images, then coated with a clear glaze to make the colors pop, I also chose to use neutral colors to create more of a realistic look.
