Functional Sculpture…Planters by Mary Oros

Comments Off 27 April 2011

Mary Oros makes sculptures that are powerful, organic expressions. Lemon Loop is one of her most recent pieces, made using her proprietary green concrete mix. Using the same high strength, enviro-friendly concrete, she introduced a line of hand-made 15+ gallon planters for the home. Just think how lovely it would be to have an artisan-crafted container…a functional sculpture…in your garden.

Here are a few styles and colors…but there’s more on her website AND she can do custom colors, too!

Cone Planter in Chartreuse

Chiseled Planter in Navy with White

Oval Planter in Purple

Oak Bark Planter

So much better than something mass produced, don’t you think?

Go Outside!

1 Comment 21 March 2011

Yesterday dark clouds and thunderstorms represented our spring equinox in the San Francisco Bay Area. And this morning’s drizzle isn’t doing much for our spirits, either. Oh, are we ready for spring! Yearning to go outside and soak up some sunshine…perhaps dreaming about our gardens and great outdoor spaces will be enough to brighten up the day.
