It is made of concrete - we designed the bowl specifically for the location. Concrete Creations did the custom work - you can view their standard product line at www.concretecreationsla.com

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mel Sierra added this to Zen Gardens: Serene Outdoor Spaces
This version of the traditional Zen garden design, created by Laidlaw Schultz Architects, incorporates other elements such as chairs and a fire pit to make a Zen garden more livable.
The inspiration for the entry courtyard, the primary entrance to the home, stemmed from Blythe’s practice of Jin Shin Jyutsu, with the intention that she would use the space for her sessions. A gravel field offers an abstract allusion to water, inspiring contemplation.
Laura Gaskill added this to 15 Great Ideas for a Lawn-Free Yard
8. Echo your home’s architecture. When planning your outdoor rooms, think about mirroring the shape of your home in materials as well as in how your outdoor spaces flow together. For instance, in the space shown here, long, rectangular pavers mirror the rectangular shapes in the siding, and the layout of the paths and yard closely follows the shape of the house itself, creating a seamless design.
