Designer Joey Roth has created an innovative self-watering planter out of naturally porous unglazed earthenware by drawing inspiration from the ancient irrigation techniques of Native Americans.

The design features a central chamber that can be filled with water, which then seeps through to the surrounding soil. This capillary action is regulated by the plants’ need for water. The planter is inspired by the Olla, an ancient irrigation tool that farmers still use to conserve water in arid climates. It can be used indoors or outside, and is designed for up to three herbs or six succulents. Roth’s planter can be pre-ordered from his website for $45.
