Nutshell Series Planters
The Natural World in a Nutshell
Nutshell Series sculptural precast concrete landscape containers feature an intricately organic surface pattern. This branching, undulating texture reflects patterns found in many different aspects of the natural world to elegantly complement native landscaping. “Contrary to its name, the inspiration for this piece actually came from patterns I noticed in erosion,” describes Larry Kornegay. “Growing up near Globe-Miami, Arizona, we used to explore sections of mining tailings that had been eroded to form a craggy, scoured topography. So, Nutshell actually came from me looking back on those memories and channeling those patterns I found so beautiful. It was only after I finished sculpting the pieces that someone said ‘Hey, that looks like a walnut!’ And the name stuck.”Visit the Larry Kornegay Artist Profile
