Small Recycled Metal Ostrich Plant Holders

Swahili Modern


  • Designed to showcase small plants and succulents, these handmade African sculptures are welded outside of Nairobi using washers, nuts, and other salvaged metal pieces. The bottom of each sculpture is very porous so consideration should be given during planting, such as lining the planter with moss.

    The sculptures can be displayed inside or outside of the home, and because they are created from salvaged materials, each planter is one-of-a-kind. Due to the nature of the metal, the sculptures will develop a patina when exposed to the elements.

    Small measures 8"L x 6"W x 20"T. Large measures 8"L x 7"W x 24"T. Size may vary slightly.

  • Moses and his small workshop of craftsmen build their own welding machines out of copper coil, tape, steel rod, and a sheet metal housing in order to create these spectacular metal works of art. Moses began his artistic career making furniture, but quickly switched to sculpture after an interested European buyer created a demand for his works abroad.

  • These small sculptures do not require additional shipping. Shipping rates can be viewed on our Shipping FAQ.
