Crackled-effect cylindrical planter in two-tone design.  The fractured 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.  This is the beauty of the artisan process.  Each piece is a unique creation, and it will be what it will be.




Secondary Colour
  • A small amount of ashes is added to the mould as the cement is being poured so that they become fully incorporated into the solid piece.  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 and direct replication is impossible.

    Ashes are cast into the darker tone of cement.

    For the 'FRACTURED' design the base colour is white.  The second colour is the feature colour you choose in the drop-down menu.
