Cylindrical planter in white with a vibrant splash of colour around the base.  The colour is not painted onto the surface but achieved using cement dye so the pattern goes all the way through.  The effect is achieved by a special hand-casting process whereby layers of cement are added in stages.  By altering the timing, rotation of mould and wet/dry consistency of the cement different effects can be achieved.

Please be aware that although the method we use gives us some control over the outcome, we are unable to predict exactly what the finished effect will be.  Photos are for guidance only.  This is the beauty of the artisan process.  Each piece is a unique creation, and it will be what it will be.


  • Concrete is made using locally sourced crushed granite dust to which we add a polymer bonding agent to make the concrete frost proof and waterproof.  

    Most notably, with the addition of cremation ashes the cement aggregate becomes a unique composition - making each piece is a new creation with its own character and charm. This includes surface markings such as granular patterns and air bubbles that naturally occur in the artisan process. Therefore please bear in mind that photos shown are for display only. Direct replication is impossible, so with a tonal choice for example colour match may not be exact as the pigment to cement ratio may differ slightly.
