Hort And Pott re-opened its doors in 2017 after TODD CARR + CARTER HARRINGTON settled into the great northern Catskills.
Dreaming of a collaborative work effort we decided to combine our respective 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 originally visited for a summer vacation.. and never left. Friends pointed us toward an abandoned farmhouse that we instinctively bought and began renovating.
we spent weeks pulling back layers of neglect to reveal the antique wide planked boards of 19th century post and beam construction that's become our inspiration & second home
We strive to create a the sensation of welcomeness and to provide a destination shop that celebrates our beautiful natural environment and respond in kind with acts of creation so often utilizing materials found within. Our aim is to share our vision with customers who appreciate and cherish the handcrafted objects imbued with life.
hort and pott is fueled by a touch of magic, the ever inspiring force behind what we do.
Our projects are born from constant discovery and the quest for inspiration..be it a wild plant we decide cast or a barn full of old wood and hardware that’s transmuted into our built environment..foraged grapevine and wildflowers and happenstance natural accidents. We cherish the history of materials, both manmade and natural and produce limited run, unique items and and maintain an ever shifting inventory. We are always striving to develop skills, acquire new materials and much like our beloved gardens, grow.
