All Lunaform planters and urns are hand built to order.
Our turnaround time upon receipt of a 50% deposit varies considerably during the year.
When you call to place your order we can tell you what the current turnaround time is. If you already know which color and textural finish you want you can tell us at this time. It is not required that the finish color be chosen at the time of order.
We will then get an exact freight quote to the zip code your order is being shipped to. After we receive this information we will provide you with a pro forma invoice showing all costs including freight, crating and the required deposit.
Your place in the production line is determined solely by your choice of planter or urn and our receipt of deposit.

Because we make all our pieces to order, there is a 25%, non refundable portion of your deposit for non-custom orders and 50% for custom.
Custom Design + Detaling
We can make any number and shape of custom pieces. If it is round, we can create it. Because we fabricate every aspect of new molds ourselves, from building the custom, interior molds to steel shaping and welding of the templates and turntables, our custom piece charges are more reasonable than most.
We welcome you to come visit us at Lunaform Studios and display gardens by appointment only. Please call us to make arrangements: 207-422-0923

Winter Care & Maintenance
Most importantly: Do not fill any planter or planted urn with more than 1” of styrofoam peanuts or gravel
to save on soil. This practice can cause surface
discoloration (with styrofoam) or structural damage (with gravel).
Concrete is a superb, noble and ancient building material. It is a product which, when cured, develops 90% of its strength in a month and then continues to strengthen over the next 100 years and can last for centuries. The Coliseum and Aqueducts of Rome are well known and excellent examples of the longevity and beauty of concrete. Today, in the world of garden planters, manufacturers generally refer to this simple and elegant material as 'cast stone' (a wonderful example of an oxymoron). The correct term is concrete, and it needs no apology or beautification of its name.
The Process by which we manufacture our planters, urns and amphorae at Lunaform is a unique and proprietary one. Each piece is hand built and hand turned on a wheel, not unlike that of a clay potters wheel, and completely reinforced with a complex web of galvanized steel.
Unlike the casting process, there are no exterior molds used and therefore no seam lines on the surface. The placement of steel is precisely controlled and is therefore used to its maximum utility, producing the strongest garden planters available. Each piece is cured out in a temperature and humidity controlled environment and then sandblasted.
Our coloring process is also done entirely by hand, piece by piece. We manufacture our own high strength, pigmented concrete finishes which are each hand applied, hand sanded, rubbed, dyed and acid washed to create the one-of-a-kind, craftsman like look of a Lunaform planter.
Glazes + Finishes
13 colors, 2 textures

Every vessel is finished with an amazingly durable, water based sealant. These glazes are available in both gloss and matte. Applied in multiple layers the vessel can begin to achieve an almost fired ceramic look and feel. Pigment is often suspended in this layer to saturate underlying colors and mottled tones.
