Combining industrial concrete & raw minerals to create contemporary art for every day living.

Tal & Bert is the meeting point of raw natural minerals and industrial concrete. Our designs are made from hand poured concrete that has been sculpted by hand in small batches. Our work is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, finding the beauty in imperfections. We take the cracks and breakages in the concrete and turn them in to designs inspired by minerals we mine. 

This company was founded by Ray & Val Talbert due to their love of mining and nature. They are still very much involved in the entire making process, working along side a small team in their studio located just outside of Pittsburgh in Mt. Lebanon. Each design is carefully hand poured & sculpted to create an industrial esthetic that perfectly matches the raw stones. 

Our geode planters can be used to hold air plants, succulents, candles or anything else. We use a hollow breakage in the design to create a geode from raw natural stones that we have self mined. Each geode shape and size will slightly vary from planter to planter. We edge the geode area in liquid gold to create a stunning look. There is NO drainage hole at bottom of the planter.
