Whether you are looking to house a feature plant in your backyard or garden, or you wish to add a statement with flora in your foyer, living room or office space, custom copper planters are a very popular choice, and for good reason. The use of copper by mankind has been dated to at least 8,000 BCE and may even predate that. It was man's first metal and has remained loved to this day. It is the only metal found in nature in a workable form, leading to its adoption by man to replace stone tools and crafts. Over centuries of working with this metal, copper has continued to amaze us with its beauty and myriad useful properties.
While modern times have discovered advanced uses for some properties of copper, like its excellent electrical and thermal conductivities (which have found uses in everything from cookware to electronics to coatings for scalpels), some of the earlier discovered benefits inform the creation of these custom copper planters. Most metals corrode destructively in response to atmospheric influences, while copper reacts to them with intelligent grace. Over time, the surface layer of copper forms what is known as a patina, which defends against further corrosion. The ingenuity of man has produced ways of artificially creating a patina in an accelerated manner. What's more, while copper's natural patina is gorgeous in its blue-green hue, man has devised ways of producing many other varieties of colors and patterns, letting us offer you a wide array of patinas to choose from. Measuring 16” on a side and 16” high, this cubic planter will be hand-crafted from either 16-gauge virgin copper or 16-gauge recycled copper depending on your choice of patina. We also offer several choices of texture for the planter to further beautify your final product.
