Plants+Cement

Can a city inspire a brand? One of the first things I noticed after moving to Philadelphia was the beautiful juxtaposition of lush greenery and industrial structures. The timeless masonry that lines the streets, set back against bountiful forests, trails, and parks. And so came Mason and Monstera. My love for plants interwoven with my devotion to sustainable craft. There was something captivating about the slow and patient process of hand-pouring concrete and the subtle nuances that you discover after demolding each piece. What initially started as an experiment in my down time during the pandemic, evolved into a full blown passion. Plus...plants make people happy! Being in their presence is scientifically proven to improve your well-being (more on that later!). I adore seeing the joy plants bring and I am so excited to begin sharing them with you. I hope you enjoy this page as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!
