Recycled Metal Ostrich Planter

The plants that grow in this recycled metal ostrich become its living plumage.

$56.00 - 74.00

In Full Feather

Ready to give both hanging baskets and gravity-bound planters a 43 mph* run for their money, these ingenious indoor/outdoor ostrich planters stand—literally, on feet—somewhere in between. Welded by Kenyan artisans using washers, nuts, and other salvaged metal pieces, their "plumage" is created by the arrangement of small plants and/or succulents you fill them with. Imagine both trailing and spiky upright flora and you'll begin to see their potential for magnificence--not to mention personality. *The speed ostriches can run. Handmade by artisans in Kenya.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

This funky little guy is -- I am told, as this was a housewarming gift from me to a friend -- even cuter up close than he is in the catalog. And that's hard to believe, because he's adorable in the photo!

much smaller than expected

Guess I didn't read well enough, this thing is tiny. I ordered a large and there's no way it will hold anything except a succulent. It's way overpriced for what it is.

              The feet on the smaller of the planters weren't completely level, which made it a bit wobbly, which is why it got 4 starts instead of 5.

                I bought this to go on my daughter's deck, but once it came, the only thing it seemed fit for was the kitchen counter holding fruit.

                          I thought it was an outdoor item - going by the picture in the book and feel bad now that my daughters have an extra job, in spraying it. Also the one in Texas says it won't stand easily - the feet are curved in. Feel bad for them.
