concrete planters



  The cast collection of concrete planters comprises two distinct ranges -
modernist collection and the baroque collection.
The planters are only available to commission so please get in touch to discuss your project.

All commissions require the making of a mould to fit the specifications and this will be factored into the quote.
modernist  collection 
 design  concept 

These designs were inspired by modernist architecture and civil engineering - buildings and structures such as grain silos, dams and bridges of the 1950s and 60s. The abstract, geometrical forms of the period are interpreted through textured relief panels on two or four sides of the containers.

baroque collection  design concept

These designs retain the flat surfaces of the modernist collection, but introduce indented 'baroque' elements such
as the voluptuous swag and drop, curls and fruit and garland details found in 18th century sculpted facades.
