- the maker
Ricky Giacco is the son of two gardeners, so you could say the seeds were sown early on that he'd grow up to be into horticulture. Ricky loved the idea of making miniature portable gardens, and the containers that would beautify them. His mission is to use locally sourced materials, crafted to create an aesthetic appeal of old world concrete urns, in lighter and smaller styles. He blends of eco-friendly concrete made with recycled products and ingredients native to the region (shells, sand, pine needles, etc.) makes for pieces that are beautiful, durable and lightweight.
