concrete planters



modernist  collection 

The designs are inspired by modernist architecture and civil engineered structures of the 1950s
and 60s - such as grain silos, dams and bridges . The abstract, geometrical forms of the period are interpreted through textured relief panels on two or four sides of the containers.
Planters are only made to order - see below.

baroque collection 

The 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.

The planters are only avalailable as bespoke commissions as the
construction of individual moulds is required for each design,
making them most suitable for larger projects.
The designs shown only illustrate the concept behind the
collection and not planters available to purchase as one-offs.
