When the sun is weak in the winter the pot is turned with the cape facing the sun. The white diffuse surface in the cape gathers the sun rays and reflects them evenly back on the plant. Like this the plant gets light both from the front and the back.
When the sun is too strong in the summer the pot is turned so that the cape protects the plant from the sun. Like this the plant is saved from burning and will need less water.
Furthermore the cape frames and enhances the beauty of the plant, like a collar, giving it a proud face in the window.
The pots are made out of clay ware with a turning technique on a potters wheel.
