Clay Pot Woman – Do You Have Project Instructions?

I received an email from Renee who asked:

Quite a while ago I saw directions for a terra cotta (clay) woman pot person. Then my house burned down and I lost the directions. Do you have directions for a woman pot person? Thank you.

My reply:
Hi Renee:
Thank you for contacting me and I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your home. I cannot imagine what going through an experience like that would be like. I do hope you and your family are now able to put that situation far behind you.

About instructions for a clay pot person … I do offer a good set of instructions on my website: Terra Cotta / Clay Pot People.

And of course with the addition of your creativity, you certainly should be able to feminize it. 🙂

Here’s a really cute idea for a female pot person that shouldn’t be too hard to duplicate:


It looks like a bag of sphagnum moss (you can find that at most indoor gardening areas in stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s, or of course gardening centers), an old straw hat, about 16 medium sized pots, about 12 small sized pots, and 2 medium-large sized pots are all you need for this project. Oh! Well yes … you will need a chair or bench of some sort, too! 😀

And again … using your creativity, you can certainly paint your pots, or add more clothing or accessories to give it your special touch.

I do hope this information helps you. Good luck with your clay pot person project.


  1. Thanks for another nice article about making pot people. I’ve wanted to try a project like this. Guess i better round up some pots now and get to work! 🙂 Will be back to visit your blog.
