Old terracotta plant stand, France, 1970
The things this column has seen, the plants he has supported, the colours he has had. If he could talk...... But that is all in the past. He travelled from Spain to the Netherlands because I asked him to. I fell head over heels in love with him (it is always difficult to resist a nice Spaniard).
He is made from terracotta, but has been painted white once and after that a dark read. And all these layers of paint are flaking now. So it shows all its colours, terra, white and red.
It is just lovely.
Dimensions: h 68 cm, diameter on top 28 cm.
