Blue Hawaii

Nature meets industrial meets nature again in this fresh planter from designers Chen Chen and Kai Williams. Each one is hand-cast from an actual, individual pineapple, creating one-of-a-kind variations in shape and texture. And they’re made using a special formulation of cement, giving them a subtle shade of blue and a soft, matte finish. Fill the inner bowl with soil, and it makes a unique setting for succulents, cat grass and other small plants. It offers a sweet little taste of nature on your desk, window sill, kitchen counter, or any spot in your home or office that’s hungry for a decorative nibble. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.

Nice enough, but . . .

Comments about PINEAPPLE PLANTER:

This little planter was purchased as a housegift for a very artsy, tropical plant-loving couple. I'm pleased with its quality, but am very disappointed that the casting doesn't bear the maker/artist signature or mark - especially since it was advertised as "each one is hand-cast . . ." as well as it being part of a larger collection of planters. Also, there is no accompanying folder, notecard, or tag describing 'The Story' nor background info on the artists Che Chen & Kai Williams. Without those details, this isn't quite The Perfect Gift.
