Thre dimensional wall art doesnt get any better than this...or any easier for that matter!
What to be or what not to be...that is the question.
Adding a frame around the older adds extra character.
The amazing detail of this piece really shines through when hung on a wall.
Add some extra goodies and you will have yourself a show stopping vignette!

Victorian plant holders have never been my favorite things, but used as wall art as given me a frsh new outlook on their coolness factor.


Did you make this?

I have seen these plant hangers and have enjoyed the design aspect of them, but no contemporary use for them came to mind....thanks for sharing this creative use for them. I will definitely pick up a few on my next junking jaunt! Posted: 7:53 am on April 20th

I have sold many of these, never hung one on the wall though, but I think I spied one in Jenny's lab under a pile of , what else, but junk. Maybe she could be talked out of it or maybe she will now hang it on HER wall! Georgia Posted: 4:49 pm on April 17th
firefoxmetalworks writes: The planter disks replicate a perfect structure for aerobic potted plant growth, yet the aesthetic of their design is applicable to bare presentation with delightful results. This is a great presentation of the antiquity behind a growing trend of new technological vertical planting. I am working on a cement/Styrofoam mountable tray that is ironically similar to these great cast iron artifacts.

Bec4 writes: Love that Sue, I can't say that Victorian plant holders are a thing I have seen a lot of around these parts, I will have to keep my eyes open. i often play a little game with myself (comes from being teacher) where I force myself to come up with at least 5 ideas for an item. Some are pretty whacky, but there is usually something in there i like! Posted: 8:01 pm on April 14th
