The Chanteloup Planter

Seibert and Rice, makers of beautiful terracotta pots for the garden, have rolled out the interesting ‘American’ line. The American line is a collection of terracotta garden pots created by a variety of top American designers and artists.

One of the designers that was commissioned is famed interior designer Charlotte Moss. I love seeing what inspires designers and how they take the inspiration, internalize it and create something new. Charlotte was inspired by the fretwork of the Pagoda at Chanteloup in France’s Loire Valley. The Chinese fretwork patterns and ideograms that embellish the pagoda, represent love, wisdom, and friendship. I love how Charlotte took this inspiration and worked them into a pretty planter.

Each of the other pieces in the collection is similarly interesting as their creators and well worth checking out. Reading through them all, I am contemplating what I would use for inspiration should I ever be asked to create something like this…..what would be your muse?

    Also check out Art in Public Places from Bend Oregon. They have a cool fluted column inspired concrete planter that could be nice in the right context. Whaddya think?

    I use Seibert & Rice pots frequently in my work. The are worth every penny–yes, they are really frost resistant here. One of my favs is the Guy Wolff ‘Hartford’ pot. http://www.seibert-rice.com/products/pots/wolff_hartford.html Simple graceful lines and casual enough for a country setting yet formal enough to hold it’s own + tons of plants!
