The simple design and unique patterns of our planters make them the perfect companion for your plants! Hand poured using Jesmonite, each plant pot comes with a matching saucer and drainage hole, meaning there’s even less chance of drowning your plants.

Each planter is finished by hand using a sealant, which helps to protect from stains, but also gives each pot a satin finish.
