I'm a potter in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest who makes ceramic homes for orchids and their owners. Clients often order pottery from my website with the hope it will fit.
I always suggest measuring the orchid itself, what does it really need to be happy?
Next, measure the grow space twice, and planning extra room for the hydration tray.
I make custom 'orchid homes' and have an online form to make the design phase easy.

It's on my E-store website: Spirit Line Pottery .com

I always request an email after the order arrives
to confirm the pottery has arrived unbroken.
It is pottery, after all,
and it's no secret that some delivery drivers
are retired from Nascar racing...'it' happens.
We have a 100% replacement guarantee and
only ship FedEx Ground/Home for this reason.

The red-brown stoneware in the photo above is a good example of a custom order that arrived safely.
This client in Kentucky has lovely old cattelyas that live on a windowsill.
Basically, his orchids are members of the family.
He wanted barely-glazed pots, 9" tall x 7" wide, with no holes.
The orchids were huge, but the hydration tray needed to be small,
very stable and fit a 6" wide space.

Another favorite client cultivates orchids,
and does well in regional orchid shows. 
He uses our unglazed raku O-Pots in his greenhouse,
and custom designs for 'cover pots' in competition.
The 4" and 3.5" blue pots (above) are for his vandas,
and a size I'm happy to make on request.

This orchid pot set above was recently designed for a client in San Francisco,
whose favorite old orchid lives on a windowsill in her kitchen.
The space was limited to 5" wide, and the pot too!
The project was both inspiring and challenging.
It's cut flat on the window-side, with room for hydration water on the elongated sides.
The disc-foot was larger and thicker for stability in a city famous for big and small earthquakes.
The photo below shows the 3/4 side view.
I'm happy to make custom orchid pots.
We have a custom design lab on our website:
