Great Britain has a rich and diverse geological structure, with distinct colouration changing with location. Conpot planters, through using carefully sourced stone seek to represent this sense of place through regional strata.

Our Brecon Granite planters are constructed from a concrete using green granite sourced from a quarry just outside the Brecon Beacons national park. Here we spent a weekend in early April exploring this landscape in order to gain a sense of the stones provenance. Based at Penpont House, a 350 year old building set within a 2000 acre working rural estate, the weekend was spent exploring the rolling hills.
