Hort And Pott re-opened its doors in 2017 after settled into the great northern Catskills. We originally visited for a summer vacation and through a series of friends and introductions never left after after they pointed us toward an old farmhouse that we immediately fell in love with and purchased. We started dreaming of a collaborative work effort and decided to combine our skills- Todd being versed in fluid, botanic sculptural techniques and Carter geometric, digital and structural. Everything fell into place when our close friend offered their carriage barn to us; we spent weeks pulling back the layers of sordid history to reveal the aged wide planked boards of 19th century post and beam construction that inspired us and has become our home away from home.
Our projects usually begin in response to discovery, be it a wild plant we decide to make castings from or a barn full of old wood and hardware that’s transmuted into our built environment. We think of the history of a material and work in available batches providing our customers with limited run, unique items and an ever shifting inventory. We are always striving to develop skills, acquire new materials and much like our beloved gardens, grow. Come visit, experience and take part of Hort And Pott.
We strive to create a feeling of welcome and to provide a destination shop that celebrates our beautiful natural environment and aim to bring our vision to customers who appreciate and cherish the handcrafted and our process of turning unthought-of of material and discards into beautiful works and objects imbued with life and most importantly fueled by a touch of magic, the ever inspiring force behind what we do.
