8" Fossil Planters

Sale price $125.00

We are putting our Fossil Planters “back in the vault” and will no longer be replenishing their stock for now. Moving forward, they will continue to be available through our custom order form or by emailing us at customercare@haand.us

This collection is inspired by stromatolites: a natural fossilized sculpture of cyanobacteria, made up of colonies of microbes that were some of the earliest known forms of life on Earth. Our planters are similarly organic, symmetrical, and full of life- ancient and modern.

A classic, medium-sized planter, this versatile, round shape can hold plants that need some room for roots to spread and plenty of soil.

Planter Stands: A planter stand serves two purposes- it raises your potentially wet catchplate off your floor or table, and they also help your plant get a little closer to a light source. It goes without saying that they also look incredible! The wood Mike uses to make this plant stands is domestically harvested Ash, and finished with a clear oil that highlights the beautiful woodgrain as it darkens and matures over time.

Is your dinnerware dishwasher & microwave safe?

Yes, our plates are designed for the rigors of restaurant kitchens and will be safe in your dishwasher & microwave. For cleaning we recommend using detergents that are gentle and environmentally friendly..

How do I clean cutlery marks off the plates?

Any matte glaze can show cutlery marking over time. This is a factor of the glaze being stronger than the flatware. Any marking is only temporary and do not worry, it is not harming the glaze. To remove these marks, we recommend scrubbing with a gentle abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keeper’s friend.

Is your dinnerware oven safe?

Yes, our plates are also safe in your oven up to 400°F but they are not bakeware or intended for routine use in the oven. Always be careful to prevent subjecting them to thermal shock (going from extreme cold to extreme hot or visa versa). Thermal shock can break or damage porcelain pottery.

Are your products durable?

Our work is used daily in over 175 restaurants around the world. Fast paced restaurants put our plates through rigors that they’ll never experience in your home. You can use our plates just like you’re accustomed to and when taken care of and stored properly, our wares will last a lifetime (or a few!).

I Need Further Assistance With My Order

We’re here to help! Visit the Order Support page for any questions you may have or you can email all questions to customercare@haand.us

Q: Should I “re-pot” my plants into my planters or should I leave it in the plastic container it came in?
A: There are occasional exceptions, but most house plants are happier and healthier when they are re-potted and given a bit of room to grow in extra soil.

Q: How much soil do I need for each size?
A: We did some research and our estimate for each size is 6 quarts for the Large, 4 Quarts for the Medium, and about 2 for the Small. We suggest using Good Dirt’s potting soil and care products.

Q: What size potted plant fits best in each planter?
A: Most houseplants are labeled with the size pot they come in, regardless of the size of the plant in the pot. The rule of thumb is that you want to re-pot a plant in a planter that is 1-2” larger than the plastic pot it comes in.

  • The 12” Long Fossil Planter, you can fit two to three 4” pots, or up to an 8” potted plant depending on the plant.
  • The 8” Fossil Planter can hold up to a 6” or 7” potted plant.
  • The 5” Fossil Planter can hold up to a 4” potted plant.

Q: Where can I learn about taking care of house plants?
A: If you like to have a book handy to refer to, we suggest The New Plant Parent by Darryl Cheng. For an online resource, start with The Sill’s Care library.

Q: Can these be put outside?
A: During the summer, absolutely! If you live in an area where you do not have to worry about freezing, you can put them outside year-round. If you are keeping these outside, you may want to set aside the catch plates so they do not collect water and hurt the plant or help bugs gestate.
