Did You Know?

The phrase terra cotta (often spelled as one word – terracotta) comes from the Latin phrase terra cocta. Terra cocta is roughly translated to mean baked earth. This type of clay or earthenware is especially porous after being baked in a kiln, making it the perfect material for garden pots and garden pot crafts because it does not retain too much water. Terra cotta is generally a natural brownish or orange hue and can vary widely depending on the materials within the clay.
Because terra cotta is porous clay, it often requires a lot of prep work before being used in sculptures or art. Generally, this clay needs to be covered with a coat of gesso, a mixture of white paint, chalk, and gypsum. This makes it much easier to paint intricate designs atop the often rough and dusty surface of terra cotta pots.

I love projects that are done with clay pots. I feel clay pots are underutilized and should be used for a great many things. I think my favorite is when you paint them because they just brighten up any room. Another idea is if you want to identify what type of plant you have planted in the pot, try painting the flower on the pot. That way when they see the pot, they will know what kind of plant they will see growing from their pot.

These would make a great gift, especially for Easter and Mother's Day. Succulents are always the perfect gift.
