Tuesday’s Find…Modernist planters

Modernist and geometric elements for the garden can be so clean lined that they lack visual power beyond their form.  This beautiful set of highly detailed planters found at Gordon Watson Ltd goes against that idea.  Made of  perspex, bronze and aluminum (so 70s!), the crisp and clean lined boxes are certainly hard edged, but when planted up the natural soft quality of plants would create a powerful visual counterpoint to their geometry.
