Mundo Series Planters

Transcending Time and Culture

Mundo Series precast concrete landscape containers embody the “less is more” philosophy that runs throughout much of Larry Kornegay’s work. The silhouettes are elemental, universally known forms that don’t belong to just one era, culture, or region. Kornegay chose the Spanish language word, “mundo,” translated as “world” in English, for its universal appeal. Beyond the definition, Larry finds that the comforting sound of the word “mundo” relates to the containers’ fluent and tranquil profile.

Born from the Earth

“When I was younger, I spent fourteen months in an apprenticeship with a man who restores prehistoric artifacts,” remembers Larry Kornegay. “So I based the Mundo Series around some of the old pots we were restoring at the time. These pots weren’t highly decorated ceremonial items, but rather plainware intended for everyday use. Working with these prehistoric ceramics, I felt this undeniable energy—feeling the maker’s fingerprints and feeling the effects of centuries of use and weathering, I felt a strong connection to the earth and its people. This is what I was trying to communicate in Mundo.”
