About Troy

Troy Yoshimoto is a New York-based ceramicist and industrial designer who defines his greatest happiness as when he is making something, particularly, everyday objects for your home.

Of this collection, Yoshimoto has said, "The planter, although quite a simple object, has a design challenge of needing to drain water to a separate vessel. I wanted to create a planter where the water tray and the pot exist as a unit, versus two distinct forms serving their purpose. I mixed different colored clays on the wheel which swirl and marble in ways that I can’t completely control, capturing the movement of the wheel. I wanted the planter to be as unique as each plant from Rooted."

The result of his technique is a beautiful and unique piece every time, exclusive to Rooted.
