Corten Steel Ellipse Planters by Adezz
Our stylish Corten Steel Ellipse Planters by Adezz have a beautiful oval shape which perfectly compliments the rusted hues of the corten steel. The smooth and sleek design makes for a contemporary piece and the lack of angled corners means this planter can be used in areas of high foot-fall for both domestic and commercial projects. Available in a range of sizes, the unique shape allows you to develop a chic garden design particularly if you are looking for softer tones without any harsh angles. The elliptical shape is emblematic of a rowing boat so with clever placement, this beautiful planter can appear to sail through your garden creating a gorgeous transition between planter, lawn and flower bed. Fabricated from high-quality 3mm thick Corten Steel, these planters are hard-wearing and durable. They are also weather-resistant with the Corten Steel forming a self-protecting rust layer which prevents degradation of the inner steel and provides the stunning amber colour. These planters also come with small 17mm feet and drainage holes which allow water to flow freely out and away from the base. The unusual shape of these Corten Steel Ellipse Planters by Adezz lends quite a large amount of flexibility to the planting scheme you can apply to them, particularly the larger options. It is possible to have taller plants in the middle and shorter or trailing plants around the edge to create different level and make the most out of your space. The gorgeous design of these planters means they work well as stand-alone pieces, when used in sets or when used in combination with out other Corten Steel Planters. Please see below for selected technical drawings.

What is Corten Steel?
Created in the United States in 1939, Corten or Weathering Steel is an alloy that forms a natural rust coating over time as it is exposed to the weather. The outer layer rusts forming a protective coating which prevents degradation of the steel inside. Corten Steel is used all over the world. Notably in the UK one of our greatest landmarks, The Angel of the North by Anthony Gormley is made from Corten. Other striking examples include the Chicago Picasso Sculpture and the Museum of Old and New Art in Australia.
How will your Corten Steel weather?
- In most cases your Corten Steel product will arrive un-rusted. It may have a slight patina or dark oily residue, this is completely normal.
- As weathering begins, the residue breaks down and the rusty colour will start to appear. During this time, any run-off may stain stone or concrete surfaces.
- After weathering (around 6-9 months), run-off may still occur but it will be minimal.
After your corten steel has arrived please unpack immediately, so that any moisture between the packaging does not remain sealed. If you do not do this, there may be irregular rust and stains.
What if you want to speed up the weathering?
Fortunately science is on your side with a quick and easy fix. All you need is salty water. Dissolve around 1 teaspoon of salt in about 1 litre of water to get a weak salt solution. Spray or paint the solution evenly over your Corten Steel and that’s it! Repeat this process around 5 times over the period of a couple of weeks and you’ll see the rust developing in no time.
