Sculptor Paula Hayes' clever planters, created with translucent silicone, are both quirky and ethereal. Made to resemble baby booties and coming in various sizes from tiny to backyard garden-sized, perhaps they serve to remind us that nature and children often go hand-in-hand.

We love the charming effect Hayes' group of assorted minis give when grouped together and placed on her silicone trays.

The large booties walk the fine line between whimsical and absurd, but completely work. We can only imagine how wonderful a garden resplendent with Hayes' planters must look.
