Naturally sculptural reclaimed teak roots become the base for this artful planter. The blown glass vessel seems to pour over the roots and sit beautifully, frozen in time, catching eyes in your home. Due to the natural wood and glass shape each is piece is unique. Made in Indonesia.
|Product Type||Vases & Planters|
|Dimensions||Approximately 10"L x 8"W x 11"H|
|Eco Info||This product features an eco-duo of recycled glass and reclaimed wood. Instead of discarding or burning these beautiful and unique teak roots, Artisans reclaim these pieces and blow recycled glass onto them to create beautiful vessels.|
|Please Note||Our recycled glass is melted at around 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Our artisan then blows the glass onto the wooden roots at around 960-1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The roots are often burnt during this process, and as a result there may be some black residue- leaving a charred appearance in some areas. Each wood piece is then washed and treated, but this heat effect sometimes goes bit deeper in the wood which can be expected, and may rub off when handled.|
We did debate for quite a while whether or not to order this item, but finally decided to purchase it, and are very glad we did. We think we are going to put sand and an air plant, with an interesting piece of wood in it. Granted, there were a few burn marks that did rub off, but we simply put a natural stain from Livos of Canada on the wood and that took care of that minor problem. Thank you for such eco friendly, natural, and most of all, affordable products.
The vase is truly unique and a work of art, but not as dynamic as the photos provided indicate. The wood is barely visible under the glass and the glass is only 6" high. Don't think I would buy it again at the current price.
Beautiful piece and a great value. I put a beautiful beta fish in mine and have it on my coffee table-stunning .
I'm keeping the vase I received because it is unique and beautiful - but not at all like pictured. The wood base is so tiny that you have to place at a certain angle to even see it. The ratio of vase-to-base is about 6 to 1, not even close to the stunning vases pictured online. Nice concept and design though.
I purchased this in October and finally received it yesterday (late January). I wish I could say it was worth the money and the long wait... but I was sadly disappointed when I received a droopy looking vase that grossly outsized the small piece of driftwood (with obvious cut marks) on which it sat. It definitely does not have the organic look (like a dewdrop on a natural piece of driftwood) or the proportions of either of the pieces pictured in the catalogue or website.
My daughter bought me this as a Christmas present and I absolutely love it! Very unique and artsy. I put polished rocks in it along with some air plants and it is gorgeous. Love, love this gift!!!
