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 is really cute. I had some difficulty getting a moss basket small enough to fit inside of it -- the body of the bird is smaller than I thought it would be. Got the smallest one, put in a couple plants and it's really cute.

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.

                They are adorable in a bunch I bought three and they occupy a corner of the patio. Even the landscaper commented how interesting these planters are and wanted to know where they came from.

                Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Metal Ostrich Planter:

                Big disappointment! I was excited to find this as a gift for my daughter but had no idea how difficult it would be to plant it. First, there is no liner included (coir takes up way too much space) and I had to run around finding something that I could cut down to size. The bowl is so small that one grass plant practically fills it. The feet are not flat - they go up in the back which makes this bird very unstable - I had to support it while planting it. The only way I can see that my daughter can use it is if she fastens it to something, puts it in her yard and puts heavy rocks on the tiny feet. This could be great but as it is, not very useful. Also the large is small - at first, I thought they sent me the wrong one. Would not recommend to anybody. I could have returned it but would have been too difficult for me to carry the large box to the post office - I am not young and strong but old and frail.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Packaged well and delivered fast - long before expected. Would have preferred to wait for a better made product!

                    Great idea but plant holder is way smaller than it appears in pic. The feet are not level and does not sit right on ground.

                          I ordered both the large & small ostrich planters as a Christmas gift for my husband.The large planter is backordered until some time in January, but the small planter has arrived. It is VERY small, and the sort of burnished gold lshown in the photograph is not at all accurate. The planter looks a bit rusty to be quite honest. Since I wanted a sort of whimsical display for outdoor plants, I plan to keep and use both planters, but I am mildly disappointed in this product.
