Philip's inspiration for the colours and textures come from the Cornish coastline and clear, calm waters.
Each pot is handmade by Philip so there are subtle variances in colour and shape which bring life and individuality to each piece that he makes. All his pots are made to order which gives complete flexibility and choice for the client.
Pots and urns make wonderful focal points in the garden, at the end of pathway or across a lawn. Focal points lure you out into the garden, make you want to explore and get up close.
I think Philip's pots are elegant and beautiful. They have a classical feel to them which makes them great for both formal and informal gardens. I can imagine one placed amongst the planting of an English cottage garden setting, but they would also work in a city courtyard garden as a centre piece.
Look how wonderful the vase below looks in a woodland setting.
Philip also makes pots with inscriptions and you can see examples of these on his website, along with pictures of the rest of his pieces.
