Recycled Metal Ostrich Planter

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

$52.00 - 68.00

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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Recycled Metal Ostrich Planter:

    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.

          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.
