Introducing The Porcelain Germination Disc. Crafted for Sowvital by the talented Salima Zahi, a Paris-based ceramist and designer. Trained in ceramics at the Estonian Academy of Arts, she seamlessly combines design and craftsmanship. Specialising in objects that blur the line between utility and sculpture.
Germination breathes life into seeds, such as avocado stones, initiating a captivating journey of plant growth. This process commences with the absorption of water, leading to the seed coat's rupture and the emergence of the plant.
Utilising avocado stones for germination is a sustainable practice that offers a delightful glimpse into the cycle of life and growth, transforming a simple kitchen leftover into a flourishing plant.
Introducing the Porcelain Germination Disc. Handmade in Paris from Limoges porcelain, this delicate disc creates a perfect union between compatibility and elegance. Its large opening provides an ideal space for propagating larger cuttings, avocado stones, and bulbs, catering to both budding and experienced gardeners alike.
Each delicate Germination Disc is meticulously crafted in Zahi's studio in the 18th Arrondissement, showcasing her expertise in clay manipulation. The Porcelain Discs serve as more than just objects; they are an embodiment of Zahi's dedication to challenging the conventional perceptions of everyday items.
With their nuanced texture and timeless elegance, they become a canvas where tradition meets innovation. As Salima Zahi reimagines this classic material, Sowvital presents not just a germination pot, but a work of art that encapsulates the essence of growth, resilience, and the beauty of the natural world.
