Hang 10: the Circle planters from Potted

July 1, 2010 |  6:44 am

Circle pots
These locally made Circle pots from the Atwater Village garden store Potted are hard to miss. Dangling from a tree, the ceramic planters stand out for their cheerfulness alone.

Designers Annette Goliti Gutierrez and Mary Gray said the containers were inspired by -- get this -- the hanging ceramic ashtrays of the 1960s. "We thought, what if we made a hanging planter like that?" Gutierrez said. "Cool hanging planters are very hard to come by."

Gutierrez and Gray designed the Circles so you can put a 4-inch nursery pot in them. Each measures 12 inches in diameter and comes with an 18-inch stainless steel cord, which can be removed if you want the piece as tabletop decor. DIYers could drill a drainage hole in the bottom and plant directly into the container.   

It's available in two colors -- Orange You Glad and White Cloud -- each $75 at the store, 3158 Los Feliz Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 665-3801.
