The French term for false wood, faux bois is a technique found often in planters and garden accessories that replicates the look of wood grain, often made of cement. There are very few known faux bois artists in the United States; but one Texas artist, Carlos Cortes, still produces custom faux bois pieces, which are considered to be highly collectible. This fake-me-out woodland motif is timeless and adds interest to any room. This is a picture of my faux bois planters. I have gorgeous succulents and moss planted in mine.
