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.

Uncommon and unusual planter

I love everything about it and now am saving up to get the larger size, because the smaller one only holds one medium size plant...but looks great.

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.

Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Metal Ostrich Planter:

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.

      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.

              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!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Item was back-ordered for several weeks. Nevertheless, it became available and was sent within the framework predicted at the time I bought it and was notified it was on back-order.

                  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.
