Influenced by principles of experimental archeology, Dutch artist Sjoerd Jonkers hand crafts pots, vases and bowls using a primitive production technique in which he casts plastics in sand molds.

The resulting black, grey, sand, and stone colored Neolastic (Polyurethane) wares are wonderfully rough-edged and textured with the look of thick stoneware, yet very lightweight and waterproof. I think they make interesting planters.
