Primitive Pottery Sculptures by Urban Earth Creations
Dallas florist and artist offerings of primitive avant-garde planters and sculptures and interior design. The finished pieces have no mold. Only one of each is ever made.
All planters/sculptures begin as a pile of soil, white portland cement, perlite, and composted materials comprised of dried flowers, branches, soil, coffee grounds, and similar natual ingredients. Interior designs are as unique with blended paint colors from walls to sculpted art pieces.
I orginally set out to make one, just ONE, simple and quick hypertufa pot for a special plant in my garden! That first pot left much to be desired in my eye and thus began a weekend pursuit that continues. The original pot needed certain lines and color combinations that I had to apply following the blue print in my mind's eye.
The dried and cured pieces needed to be sanded by hand, thinned out or thickened, even added to with additional layers of wet cement. Once completed, several layers of watered down paint are applied one brush stroke at a time.
My current hypertufa recipes and mixes have evolved quite a bit from that first pot I created. It seems now that with each one of a kind piece, I use various combinations of portland cement, mortar, perlite, and organic composted materials to be found only in that one piece. They just evolve that way.
New pieces are added weekly and I try to keep up with the demand as best as possible. Custom orders are welcome as well as wholesale pricing for retailers and galleries. If you're in the Dallas area, I also welcome consignement opportunities. Feel free to contact me on the Contact page.
More to come as I respond to the next inspired piece. May you enjoy them as well...
