They look like spheres from outer space, like comet pieces turned into planters, or geodes found in deep caves. But the truth is much more simple yet quite as fascinating: these amazing round planters are all handmade by a creative American-Polish couple based in Berlin. We are happy to introduce you to Dirty Roots Berlin.
Dirty Roots Berlin is a passion project by Adam Cotorceanu and his girlfriend Agnieszka. Like many botanical projects this one started as a simple idea and side project. Today, the creative duo produces dozens of planters and sells them successfully online as well as through special events such as this upcoming pop-up in Berlin. And during the Covid crisis the project even gained more momentum and kept both of them busy producing the spherical planters.
What makes Dirty Roots Berlin so special is that every planter is unique. The planters are made of concrete and volcanic rocks and come in various sizes and shades. And every single production step is truly handmade by the two creators. They mix the concrete themselves creating various colors and effects, they add volcanic rocks thus providing a perfect living environment for plants as the pots breathe and have drainage holes.
Once these pots are made, the next fun step kicks in. The plant-loving couple then matches plants and pots creating almost living design objects. Every plant-pot combination is well considered and the final result get baptized accordingly: so with Dirty Roots Berlin you can add Hale-Bopp, Kalliope or Orion’s Belt to your home. And you guessed right: most of these names are actual names of asteroids or comets. Matchy matchy!
What we love about Dirty Roots Berlin is its passion and love. You can feel it in every piece. Additionally, every planter is a one-of-a-kind piece and you will definitely get something unique for your plant collection and plant shelf. But what really makes us happy too is that these planters and plant-pot combinations are very affordable! You don’t have to spend a fortune for a unique piece of plant goodness in your home. Have a look at their webshop, you will see what we mean!
All Dirty Roots Berlin pots come in three sizes: small, medium and giant (definitely eye-catcher and statement piece). Moreover, they come with small handmade saucers too that match the style of each planter and provide an additional stability if desired. We are fans and we are actually thinking of doing something special with Dirty Roots Berlin – but that is yet to be seen! Stay tuned!
