Succulent. Plant measures 16" in diameter. I wanted to show this plant
but not in the commercial pot it was in. Attempted to make a container
2months ago that cracked badly during the 1st firing. The next try I put
in the kiln too soon and it exploded. The pot it in now I made on Apr
27th, force dried and fired it on May 2nd. It was staged on the 4th and
transported to the show on the 6th.

I've had this plant for about 10yrs, purchase as a branching seedling swimming in a 2in square plastic pot. It has been in that same container the entire time till a few days ago when I decided to stage it. It's not terrible hard to grow unless you live in a hot summer area (which I do). During the hotter months I keep under a bench with a northern exposure so it does not get too hot. Gets watered periodically, maybe every 3-4wks so it looks a bit dried out by the time the next drink comes around. Never fed, only freshened soil and placed back in the same container about 5yrs ago. Stays exposed to the elements during the winter where it get rained on and fattens up.
The pot is a 3in oval
