PLANTER - Mansion
The Mansion Planter is a large pot made of mortar designed to look like a miniature apartment building ('manshon' in Japanese means apartment, not a mansion as in the English language). Admire the set of stairs that lead to the building's front door and the tiny apartment windows and balconies that line two sides of the mansion. There is a drainage hole to drain excess water from the planter.
By planting and growing plants in the Mansion Planter, the texture of the mortar will deepen with natural effects of the elements - heat, rain, soil, time. Cracks may appear on the main body and glass, but please enjoy it as an appeal of the object. There are chips and bubbles in the mortar, but please enjoy it as the texture of the work. It's a deeply considered and incredibly charming object to make home for your favourite plant.
*Plants are not included.

Based in Kyoto Japan, Nobuhiro Sato and his small team individually craft these incredible objects by hand using the same techniques and materials for constructing buildings. With the passage of time, these objects will change and take on their own expressions, just like any landscape where nature and the man-made coexist.
