These herb markers are perfect for the gardener or chef in your life, ideal for small window and counter top herb gardens. I believe using fresh herbs in home made meals takes it to a whole new level, and what better way to label them than with a unique, handmade item!
Though markers vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the item, each measures 6″ long and 1/2″ wide with an angled bottom for easy insertion in tough ground.
Each name stake is made by cutting the rectangular clay shape from a smooth slab, individually hand stamping the letters and allowing it to slowly dry before firing to over 2200 degrees. Then it was hand painted with the appropriate glaze on the top and within the letters before being fired again to a lower temperature around 1800 degrees! The whole process takes a couple weeks to accomplish from beginning to end and results in a lovingly made shape with visible care put into its creation. Since the letters are filled with a glaze, the process leaves it with a light texturing on the top and sides giving a very modern rustic chic sort of look.
The following herbs (with color) are included:
Unglazed portion can discolor over time, but can be bleached or cleaned.
Additional markers can be created to spec, just message me and we can talk through the details. More herbs and more options to be coming soon. If you have a favorite (or two!) you’d like to see available please let me know so I can be sure to put it on the list!
