Jacob Honn

The pots I have been creating this semester are meant to hold, enhance, and display a collection of living things, functionally—these living things being members of the genus Philodendron. These pieces are meant to be demonstrative of time and process: the foliage growing as it spends more time in a space, the ritual nature of tending, and the natural white/yellow patina of soluble salts and minerals through the terracotta’s porous walls.
