O'Keefe Flower pot: Pitcher Plant
48x18x20 in
Paper Clay

for sale

Orchid was a great success and very popular, but difficult to hang. I decided to make a freestanding flower. The shape evolved as I built it into a rather traditional vase form. I added the back hood inspired by my native pitcher plants and left the throat open. It is beautiful in its simplicity.
