Ixhua is a handmade ceramic vase made by Mexican women that has a dual function or double purpose, it has the potential ability to grow a plant. The idea was born from the need to help the environment and to make people aware of how easy it is to grow plants. When buying an Ixhua, you are also supporting Mexican crafts made by women in need of work. Inside the ceramic container, it contains a compressed Canadian moss pellet, which works to germinate seeds.
The label is printed on seed paper, which contains types of varied seed that are germinated to grow their respective plants. In these photographs, it is paper baby’s breath flower seeds. There are also seed papers that contain carrot, chia and clover seeds. The label is clean and ecological to prevent distraction from the seeds and/or ceramic vase. The vase is without pottery glaze to maintain the natural feel of the project and to avoid containing chemicals.
