Venus of Willendorf was discovered in 1908 near Willendorf, Austria. She has been dated as having been carved 22,000-25,000 years ago during the upper Paleolithic period. This robust beauty is one of the oldest and most famous works of art in the world. While we may not all have the opportunity to travel to the Natural History Museum in Vienna, we can still enjoy her essence at home with the six inch tall pure beeswax statue. Whether you imagine her as a fertility statue or a Mother Goddess, I hope you enjoy the addition of Venus of Willendorf to your ritual practice.

A little green to perk up your home or office that is low maintenance is always a win. Since I was a kid I was fascinated by air plants and to be honest, in nearly fifty years of living that just hasn't changed.
To brighten up the winter blah I decided to bring in a lot of beautiful little air plants to put in pottery. It's worked. They make us smile every day and we hope they'll make you smile, too.
With this order you will receive 1 yellow handmade earthenware dish and 1 airplant. They're all unique and a little different which is one of our favorite things about both handmade and plants.
Like everything we do here at Gravesco Pottery, there is intention in our choice. The Tillandsia Ionantha air plants are farmed by CITES certified nurseries. We do not support collecting plants in the wild - we want to keep the wild just as it is...wild and plentiful! Even better, the company we source our air plants from donates $1 from every sale to Pencils of Promise.
Not sure how to care for an air plant? No worries. We've got you covered. Read on...
