Tierra Sol Studio makes hand formed ceramics, hand grown plants, and hand mixed soils—For Plant Killers who are Plant Lovers.


We are so happy you found us! We were plant killers too!

At Tierra Sol Studio, we design and make hand formed ceramics for the needs of each plant, hardy hand grown plants, and hand mixed soils—for plant killers who are plant lovers.

We want your plants to live forever and we spent years making that possible. We (Seana + Yair) started Tierra Sol Studio because we couldn’t keep plants alive.

Plants improve focus and are scientifically proven to make us happy, but we couldn’t grow any in our small dark apartment while I (Seana) was in graduate school. I began to study plants and their needs with the same dedication as my graduate research. We began to find the hardiest plants, conduct experiments, and would track which plants survived me being away for many months during fieldwork. I had made pottery since I was a kid and spent time working out how to create the best environment for each plant type.

We use only the highest quality and lowest maintenance plants. We grow all of our plants in our greenhouses. Yair and I craft each ceramic piece with our own hands though hand building or wheel throwing. We fire each planter using an unconventional method to make pots that are absorbent like terra cotta and best fit the needs of each plant.

If you have any questions about which plants are right for your space, just send us a message!

Now you too can have an Instagram page dedicated to your plant hoarding! You know you want to…

xo, Seana + Yair

Returns and exchange details

Please read the policies below.

Returns, Exchanges and Cancellations Policies:
Returns must be requested within 3 days of delivery and shipped back to us within 7 days of delivery. Customers are responsible for return shipping costs. Upon return, the package will be assessed to make sure products are undamaged and we are able to resell. Refunds will be made to original form of payment.
We ship orders as quickly as possible. We can only process cancellations on the same day the order is placed and - only - if the order has not been started. Any orders that are in the packing process and are canceled may have a restocking fee to cover the cost of work completed. We will respond to your message during business hours Monday-Friday.

Refund Policies:
We only grow and use the highest quality and most hardy plants and spend each day caring for them until they arrive at their destination. Since we can no longer care for the living plants once they arrive at their destination, in the rare case that something happens to them after they arrive, refunds cannot be provided. We provide easy care instructions for each of our low maintenance plant varieties. In the rare case that something happens to your plants, we do have replacements available should you need.

In the rare case that something happens to your plant and you would like to purchase a replacement, we are happy to do so. Since we work really hard to grow our plants and make planters for the specific needs of each plant, we only send out replacements to live in our planters. We don’t sell plants by themselves without our planters.

If you have any questions, concerns, or your item arrived other than expected, please contact us at care [!at] tierrasolstudio.com within 3 days of package delivery and we will do our best to resolve the issue during business hours Monday-Friday.

Please let us know if you have any questions or issues with your order before assembly or leaving a review. We are happy to help with your order.

Customer Service Policy:
As a company, we value the mental and physical health of everyone who works at our company. We demonstrate these values to our employees through policies that allow all employees to avoid any kind of mental distress via customer service. Our company strives to be a safe space where people treat each other with respect. No employee will be required to address aggressive behavior from any customer or potential customer. We reserve the right to refrain from contact with any customer that is behaving in a way that would cause distress to any employee.

Shipping Policies
Tierra Sol Studio ships items using First Class and insured Priority Mail to ensure that your items arrive quickly. A tracking number will be emailed to you when your item has shipped!
First Class orders are typically delivered within 6-9 business days.
Priority Mail orders are typically delivered within 5-7 business days.

Due to the global pandemic, we continue to ship on time but cannot guarantee the arrival of packages by the estimated delivery date. We are unable to refund orders if they are delayed and marked as "in transit."

In the rare case that a piece is damaged in transit, please take a photo of the damaged item and box and contact us at care [!at] tierrasolstudio.com within 24 hours. We are happy to replace any items that have been damaged due to our error as long as you contact us within 24 hours of receiving the item. We will do our best to send a replacement part(s) that are exact, or very similar to, the item(s) you ordered. We will respond to your message during business hours Monday-Friday.

Any plants traveling through temperatures below 40 degrees must ship with a heat pack (available for purchase through our shop). If packages traveled through these temperatures and a heat pack was not included, causing the plant to arrive damaged, we cannot replace or refund the order, but plants may be repurchased.

We wait for each package to be scanned in by hand at the USPS. Once the post office receives your package, USPS is responsible for it. We recommend priority shipping so that your order is insured. The person who placed the order or receiver is responsible for contacting the post office about lost or late packages. The USPS needs specific details about the home and package drop location from the receiver in order to process their search in the case of a lost or late package. If your package is lost or missing you will need to file a claim with USPS to find the package or receive a refund through the insurance included with Priority shipping.

Plants should be unpacked and assembled as quickly as possible. We recommend opening the package right away to allow for light, but they do not need to be assembled in the planter if you would like for the receiver to have the fun of assembling. Plants and planters should be assembled and watered within 5-7 days of ordering.

Plants and planters are shipped disassembled so that they do not shift while being shipped. Each comes with easy and fun instructions for assembly and care. Please check your package for all pieces of your order.

We have a very small window of time in which we can change your shipping address before a package is shipped. Please contact us immediately if you need to change your shipping address. Shipping labels must be changed at the moment that the label is printed. We will try our best to change it for you but cannot guarantee a change in shipping. Should the address change not go through, you can reroute your package by calling the local post office for your original shipping address.

All of our labels are auto-printed with the address provided at checkout. If the address is incorrect, USPS is unable to deliver, someone is unable to pickup the package, or any other circumstances leading to a returned package, we must wait to receive the returned package before assessing the cost to reship the package. Cost to reship the package may include the USPS shipping fee and any potential plant replacement due to being held by USPS.
Additional policies and FAQs
Additional Policies and FAQs
Since all of our items are handmade and unique, there may be slight variations in size, color, or shape. We recreate pieces as close to the photo as possible. We match our plants with planters we make just for them. Since the size of plants varies, our planter sizes vary as well. Some plants have naturally occurring flaws. When our plants have this we do our best to photograph them to show these abnormalities so you know what your purchased plant will look like.

All of our orders are beautifully packaged and ready to be given as gifts. We are happy to send gift messages! We will not include a receipt unless otherwise specified. Just let us know that the purchase is a gift and what message you would like to include in the notes section of your cart and we will hand write your message on a gift note!
