Richard Taylor at Pottery Barn & a Giveaway

It was very exciting the other day to find that select pieces from concrete artist Richard Taylor are now being offered exclusively through Pottery Barn! All the pieces bear his name and Pottery Barn has done a terrific job of crediting his talent in their descriptions:
"After years of experimentation, English artist Richard Taylor perfected the difficult craft of mold making. His artistry allows him to create original pieces that showcase his great skill and eye for detail. Made from his original molds with details that are hand carved by Richard, our planters feature two rounded handles and a decorative double ridge."

The Handled Planters above are available in 4 sizes, ranging from $12 - $99.
Fluted Urn - $14
Leaf Planters - available in 2 sizes, $16 - 29.
and this very cute bird on a metal stick for $6.

Although it says Richard's pieces are available online and in the catalog, at my local Pottery Barn (Arlington-Clarendon) they had a nice selection of the Handled Planters and the Fluted Urn. The finish and texture are great and the aged look sets these pieces apart.

In honor of Richard's work being carried by Pottery Barn, I'm having a giveaway. The winner will have a choice of the Fluted Urn or a small Handled Planter or Leaf Pot. Just leave a comment by Monday night 9 pm Eastern.

*UPDATE* - Jean of the blog Downsizing in San Francisco is the winner. Congrats Jean!

the pots are beautiful!
are they resin or actual clay?!

they look like something the dearly departed Smith & Hawkin would have carried..... with the arrival of Spring around the corner (at least I hope;) I'm really missing S&H!

happy weekend!

Deviant Deziner, aka Michelle said...

As one who has grappled with making molds, I can see where these pots posed a technical challenge.
Congrats to Richard Taylor for creating a beautiful and affordable line !

Marielle said...

Lovely. It actually was painful to be in France in December and not be able to bring some of the beautiful urns we saw home with us. Luggage restrictions be damned!

Susan Hemann said...

balsamfir said...

Will look for pots this spring when I get to PB(1.5 hours away). Cement is a wonderful garden pot material, unbreakable, grows moss well. I like the fluted urn best of your choices, but they're all charming.

Carla@DesignintheWoods said...

These are beautiful! I love lots of different styles and sizes of pots outdoors. When hurricane season comes and we have one bearing down on the Texas coast, I drag them into my garage one at a time, swearing I must start giving them away as gifts. I never do though. I love them all.
