Vessel USA Inc began producing modernist ceramic planters in 1998 when they resurrected a historical California brand called Architectural Pottery established 1950. We created Architectural Block™️ with the same mid-century flair. Our case study Planters + Patio tables have been nominated for a design product of the year award and design trend for outdoor amenities and commercial landscapes. We make concrete cool! Each Architectural Block™️ product is engineered using proprietary techniques and the finest materials to endure the test of time.

Our Planter & Table amenities enhance environmental landscapes with a wow factor!

Planters + Tables + Options

Please review our Gallery photos for case study designs. Architectural Blocks are modular so you can add or subtract for the right size Planter + Table per your specifications.

Outdoor tables can be ordered with a 1/4″ tempered glass surface top although many patterns will easily hold ordinary utensils without falling through block perforations. Non-glass surfaces never have to be cleaned. Blocks will acquire a handsomely aged patina over time.  Simply hose them off with a regular garden hose if needed. Our larger commercial planters can be ordered with or without an interior fiberglass liner or drip tray. Self watering reservoirs, sub-floor irrigation or drain holes can be integrated into each fiberglass liner. Commercial size block planters may require a stainless steel support rail for uneven floor surfaces and also give the planter a floating effect.

Planter Options:

P = block pedestal 2.5" high
L = fiberglass or ABS liner 
C = finish cap 
R = stainless steel channel rail 
B = beveled corners (45 degree cut & bond)
S = 7/16"dia wire stand
F = flat face pattern
