The Rippled Planter possesses a bold organic quality. This contemporary planter's beautiful design is versatile enough to allow it to be used as a planter, trash can and more.
Each rippled planter is made out of lightweight yet durable fiberglass structure. Each contemporary planter is then fused with a variety of metals that will age gracefully over time and develop a soft patina over the surface of our rippled planter. Standard finishes for each of our rippled planters are Black Matte (Zinc), Bronze or Copper. Custom metal finishes for our contemporary planters include Stainless Steel, Cast Iron and Brass. We can also match our rippled planter to any existing color in Matte or Glossy finishes. *Please allow up to 12 weeks lead time for Custom colors and finishes.
How they will age over time: Copper, Matte Black, Bronze, Brass, Cast Iron, and Stainless Steel metal finishes are all optimized for outdoor use and will age naturally over time. Certain factors of climate can affect the degree of change, for example geographic areas with higher salinity will accelerate the patina of the bronze and copper finishes. Matte Black and Stainless Steel will become more matte over time.
Glossy custom color finishes are recommended for indoor or covered outdoor use to maintain their hue. Prolonged UV exposure will fade darker colors over time; Lighter colors maintain longer but may still fade as well.
Drainage: For outdoor use it is sometimes necessary to drill drainage holes. In most cases, three holes are more than sufficient, with diameters from 0.25" to 0.5" inches wide. Any standard drill bit may be used simply space the necessary holes evenly around the bottom of the container. For indoor use, no holes or exterior saucers are necessary. For indoors, it is recommended using a container with a plastic saucer within the fiberglass planter.
