Pot + Plinth: Making the New Timeless

From the 1st appointment earlier this year I KNEW a focal point should be on axis with the front door.


Earlier this week, above/below.


A few minutes old, above, this urn looks as if she's been reigning at least a century.
.
She's designed empty, with a floral designer brought in for catered events.  Remember, a pot must be so fabulous it can stay empty.
.
Found the pot/plinth resourcing materials at the Americas Mart with client.  A great 1/2 day.  Would have taken a decade, at least, to hunt/gather what we found !
.
Garden & Be Well,   XO Tara

Pics taken earlier this week at jobsite.  Shovels, 5 men, a level, were involved getting this beauty 'right' !
