Hello! I'm Rachel Sender. I work as an illustrator, ceramist and illustration teacher at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.

I started playing with clay in 2013 as a way to get away from my computer work and I haven't been able to keep my hands off mud since. I came up with the idea of Potheads some years ago – little plant pots for the home or outdoors with their own faces and personalities, that add a friendly and humorous touch wherever they're placed. Each Pothead's appearance varies depending on the plant or flowers placed in them, allowing you to customise each one to your liking. 

If you'd like to receive a wholesale catalogue please write an email to info(at)rachelsender.com
