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.

As always, we try to bring you products that are thoughtfully sourced with the importance of embracing other small businesses that embrace joy and share their successes.

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...

AIR PLANT CARE from the source:

CARING FOR YOUR BRAND NEW AIR PLANTS

Yay, they've arrived! After you've unpacked your plants and spent sufficient time marveling at their unique beauty (and possibly giving them names), give them a good soak in a water bath (submerged in the water) for about 20-30 minutes. Shake gently to remove any excess water, and set in a spot with bright light and good air circulation to dry off. Follow the directions below for ongoing care of your plants.

LIGHT

Air plants should be kept where they'll receive bright, indirect sunlight or under fluorescent home/office lighting. Periods of direct sunlight are just fine, but more than a few hours of hot sun will deplete the plants of their moisture. If your plant will be in a spot with some pretty direct light, try misting them every couple of days to keep them hydrated.

WATER

Air plants live on air, right? Uh, not right! While air plants don't grow in soil, they definitely NEED to be watered. While the plants can survive for long periods of drought, they will not grow or thrive and will eventually die off if water is too scarce. Follow the directions below for watering your plants on a regular basis and they will stay alive and well for quite some time. The good news is that since these plants are very forgiving, you shouldn't stress over their care schedule. There's certainly no need to get a babysitter when you go on vacation.

As a main method of watering your plants, we recommend giving them a thorough rinsing under running water or letting them soak in a bath of water for 20-30 minutes. You can use a bowl, the sink or even the bathtub if you've got a family. After their shower or bath, gently shake the plants to remove any excess water from the base and the leaves, and set out to dry in an area with enough air circulation to dry them out in about 4 hours. If your plants need an in-between watering, misting them with a spray bottle is a great method. A plant in bloom should be rinsed rather than submerged in water, and take care when rinsing the delicate flowers.

HOW OFTEN DO I WATER MY AIR PLANTS?

Your plants should be watered once per week, and 2-3 times is recommended for optimal care. A longer, 2-hour soak is recommended every 2-3 weeks. If you are in a drier, hotter climate, more frequent watering or misting will be needed. You'll begin to notice that after watering, your plant's leaves will feel stiffer and full of water and they'll be softer and lighter in color when they're in need of water. Wrinkled or rolled leaves can be a sign of dehydration.

TEMPERATURE

Air plants will do best in generally warm conditions (a good range is 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit). In frost-free or nearly frost-free climates they can live outside for the entire year. Like most house plants, they can be taken outside on a porch or balcony for the warm season, just don't expose them to temperature or sun extremes. 

GROOMING & AESTHETIC MAINTENANCE

Everyone needs a little grooming once in a while! It is normal for some of the lower leaves of your tillandsias to dry out as the plant grows or acclimates to a new environment, and those leaves can be gently pulled right off of the plant. If the leaf tips have dried out, you can snip the dried tip off (try trimming at an angle to leave a natural-looking pointy tip), and the same can be done for the plant's roots. Don't worry about harming your plants during grooming--they'll regrow.
