Check out this stoneware planter from Paige Russell. Fossil asked four artists to create an original piece of artwork that illustrates the Fossil motto/slogan ‘Long Live Vintage’. Inspired by the Eames Lounge Chair, this planter by Paige is my absolute favorite.

Droog presented Aldo Bakker’s Copper Collection at Design Miami/Basel 2010 this year, and as usual, there’s plenty to admire. Made out of liquid copper using the time intensive lost-wax method (French name being cire perdu), this watering can is entirely seamless and has openings that ensure a perfect pour.
The copper mixing bowl (below) allows a reaction with protein, which Chefs recommend apparently, and of course, sits like a sculpture when not in use. The soy pourer is lined inside with 100% fine silver, which makes it perhaps the most elegant (and expensive) modern soy pourer in existence.
All pieces are limited and numbered in editions of 15.
Designed by Aldo Bakker for Thomas Eyck
Collection includes Watering Can, Mixing Bowl, Soy Pourer, Candle Dome
Purchase Information:Price: $3,000.00

It features a special contoured base that drains water quickly and evenly to prevent plants from over-soaking, but also has a central reservoir where a small amount of water collects to keep the soil moist longer. Comes in a Short or Tall configuration, and is priced at $150 and $160 respectively.
Manufactured in Los Angeles County.

I really love these hand-cast planters by Kelly Lamb. It’s quite an interesting mix of materials and textures; they’re cast in concrete for an industrial feel but have a smooth finish to go well in interiors, and of course adding in plants gives it the final touch. Available in small and large sizes, priced at $80 and $125.
Small Geo Planter: 9.5″ diameter, 8lbs
Large Geo Planter: 15″ diameter, 25lbs

Jeffrey, of JeffreyJamesModern, commented upon the cost prohibitive Ladyslipper Terrarium last week in order to draw attention to his own more affordable line. And what do you know, compared to $9,500.00, the price of $350 seems downright dirt cheap. I’d snap of them up right away if I lived in the US and if I could keep plants alive. There’s also a “You Choose, I Create” terrarium option, where you can choose everything “from the size and shape of the terrarium to a myriad of materials, colors and plants inside”.
To see the entire line, visit JeffreyJamesModern.
