I am happy to announce that I will be participating in the fifth installment of Jack Lenor Larsen’s Planters On & Off The Ground show at the LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton NY. This is the 4th year that I have participated. As a result I have built up quite a collection of planters. I recently compiled all of my outdoor pieces into a digital catalog featuring seven benches, eight planters and two other major outdoor pieces. If anyone would like to see it please send me an email.
Planters On & Off The Ground
Saturday June 23rd, 4:30-7pm
LongHouse Reserve 133 Hands Creek Road
East Hampton, NY
Open Wednesday and Saturday 2-5pm
July & August Wednesday through Saturday 2-5pm
Visit the LongHouse website and consider a membership if you frequent the East End
I will be showing a number of new pieces in the show:
I designed this concrete stool to be paired with an all concrete dining table. It seems like it would be equally at home in the garden.
Planter #7 is a Hypertufa trough. The material is a mix of portland cement, vermiculite, peat moss and sand. The mix is designed to mimic a volcanic rock that was used in europe to make carved animal troughs. People then began using them as planters, hence the need for a new material to satisfy the demand.
Planter #8 is made of cast concrete and Sapele wood. The Sapele verticals are fastened on to the concrete base with stainless steel cap screws.
I am very happy with the way the planters look with the plants in them. What fun!
