Inspired by nature...
Trees are incredible. An important part of the planets survival. The bark of trees, the structure of a leaf, the texture of a branch have all inspired Bela Silva.
Tree bark is like our own skin - essential in holding everything together. Keeping moisture in, protecting against fungal infection, fending off the elements - the scorching sun or drying winds and a shield to prevent attack from insects, hungry birds and nibbling mammals.
However many creatures are also welcome to use this remarkable skin as a home, for food or to hide.
They creep into cracks, crevices and holes. Bats can sometimes be found under loose pieces of bark.
Inspired by the energy, generosity and resilience that plants, and in particular trees radiate, Bela Silva has created these spectacular carved pots with their amazing coloured glazes. Pots that bring plants to the centre of attention in any indoor or outdoor setting.
With a nod to the natural world Bela's blue-green glaze, a recurring feature in her work, combined with a gnarled natural finish with simple geometric designs and repeated relief shapes create this striking plant pot collection.
Your plants will never have looked better.
