Me as we'll please post Video. Been looking for a way to make large pots, which I find hard to find with much variety.

they are not heavy, the wall thickness is about 1cm.

i will make a video in about 1 week, i'm just working on ways to make it faster and easier now. at the moment is about 6 hours work to make one, i want to get it down to about 1-2 hrs.

but basically, its 100% render cement core over a plastic box. then the core is covered with fiber glass tape like the one used for gypsum board (sheet rock) joins. then left over night to harden.

then i use cement mixed with color and trowel it on to the core, then use a custom made stainless steel cutter to carve out the wall profile, using a plywood base as a perimeter guide.

the video will make it clear.
