Muradian pot needs a good home

I’ve never planted this pot made by Fresno-based potter Mark Muradian, whose pots are at all the succulent and cactus shows in California.
It’s just too precious for the way I shuffle things around constantly. 5 and a half inches wide and tall, including feet.

So this will be a low-key giveaway, no tie-ins to Instagram, Facebook, etc., just for the hard-core readers (you know who you are!) but U.S. only.
If no one wants it, then I’ll finally plant something in it, maybe the little Pachypodium namanquanan that’s bulging out of its current pot.
If only one person comments and needs it, it’s yours. I’ll close this out in early September.

Happy Monday!

  1. Very cool little pot. Your blog has been one of my winter, cabin fever therapies to make it through the dark cold South Dakota winters until I can move back to California.
    Hoping to be back in Far Northern California next year!

  2. It’s a gorgeous pot Denise. I think you should plant it up! A Kalanchoe orgylis would look perfect in it – or a pup from one of your bromeliads.

  3. Would be perfect for the very limited space between my kitchen sink and the window!

  4. Oh, my! You are hitting so many emotions here…desire (want!), restraint (no, you need to keep it), humility (could I EVER create a pot-plant combo like yours?!), glee (a giveaway with nary a corporate sponsor in sight!)….This will be loved by anyone who appreciates your artistic eye and fine writing. Such graciousness in the midst of this lovely Southern California summer. A tiny little celebration on the World Wide Web.

  5. Love the feet. Live in VA and have love for west coast since my husband works and grew up there. Don’t visit very often but love gardens and your ability to grow many things year around. Can’t do that here.

  6. Went to Theodore Payne today and was reading up on some of my new friends when I found your blog again, with the Santa Monica house (dog Sadie/designer Fleur/ Lili Singer) in my bookmarks. Now feeling refreshed and ready to plant, I see this lovely pot standing on its wee feet. I admire. I comment.

  7. I have a petite dwarf version of Agave victoriae-reginae that would look beautiful in that pot. May I send it to you, so you can keep the pot?

  8. I have several of his pots. Most of them are unplanted because I find them too special to get dirty. Makes no sense, does it? After all, they were created to have plants in them! BTW, I don’t need another pot so no need to include me in the drawing.

  9. I finally got my hands on a echeveria Compton Carousel and I have been looking for a special pot. This would make the perfect pairing!

  10. I would love to put a recently acquired Tephrocactus Geometricus in this pot and give it to my daughter as a wedding gift in October 2016. Please consider me in the giveaway. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much for being a person who is willing to share this work of art.

  11. I just started a small collection of cacti and succulents, and I did not realize nice small pots were so hard to come by. Somehow the sizes I’m looking for are *always* the ones not available anywhere. I finally broke down and drove the 50 minutes to the Cactus Center. I was more interested in the plants than the pots at the shows this summer, but next time I’ll know to stock up!
