PRODUCT STORY
Ronald and Jeni says: Each piece is wheel thrown, all holes are carved out individually then smoothed with a sponge, and soda fired to 2350*F in our gas kiln. Sporenet terrariums are intricately-carved and includes homegrown and propagated succulent plants.

As a couple, we create an array of functional and sculptural ceramics inspired by botany, mycology, marine biology, and astronomy. We take every measure to ensure a high level of craftsmanship and quality control through every process. Our pieces are not only beautiful, but professionally made with attention to detail.

Ronald and Jeni's design is not an easy one to miss! We love that it was inspired by science and includes their homegrown succulents. Are you a fan?
