Domani is one of the only creators of extra large terracotta planters. Every Domani piece is made by hand, formed by craftsmen, using age old methods that make each piece unique. Along with a wide range of shapes, sizes and clay colours to choose from, custom orders are also a possibility.
The pots and planters are made using one of three different materials:
Domani uses high-quality clay made from a kaolin base with special properties. While baking, the clay will coalesce so that virtually no absorption of water is possible. Our terracotta absorbs no more than 3 to 4% of water which ensures that our planters are frost-proof.
The aesthetic rust look of Corten steel gives a contemporary feel to residential and commercial landscape design. Corten steel is perfectly suited for making planters as it is durable enough to survive the extreme temperature variations of Canadian Winters and Summers. Frost- and crack-resistant, Corten steel develops an attractive surface patina but will never rust through.
The zinc planters are used extensively in European urban landscape design. The titanium-zinc plates, soldered together with tin, contain 4% silver which makes them extremely durable in varying weather conditions. When exposed to humid air or water it will naturally oxidize, first forming a protective layer of white powder, then changing to a light grey patina. Each of the zinc pots has a built-in water drain.
