Nine to Know | Pots and Planters

We see how designers have explored the unique possibilities of materials through nine outdoor pots and planters.

Sculptural forms and tactile finishes transpire through our edit of nine artisanal pots and planters designed for the outdoors.

This feature originally appeared in est Magazine issue #39.

The Moderno/ARD Furore Grey pot by Adam Robinson Design is made from lightweight cement clay with a textural grey finish.

The Moroccan-inspired GL Goodrum Coil pot, a collaboration between Garden Life and designer Adam Goodrum, features a unique coiled patterning achieved through an ancient pottery technique.

The Hourglass pot from Ferm Living has a unique asymmetrical curved shape, cast in metal with a matt black finish – designed to withstand outdoor environments.

The Serralunga Cassero Long pot is a large scale planter designed by Patricia Urquiola, resembling the joints of a construction mould.

The Atelier Vierkant EM Pot resembles an organic, pebble-like shape. These hand-carved pieces are made from German clay, which can be fired at high temperatures, producing strong, frost-proof vessels in earthy colours.
