The trumpet like shape of this Spun Metal Planter resulted from a manufacturing mistake during the production of a spun metal trashcan prototype. We cut the original metal blank too big, so the metal spinner ran out of room when forming the lip of the wastebasket. The result was a dramatic flared form – which we loved. The one-off accident became a succulent planter on our porch, and quickly earned the interest of visiting friends. At their urging, we did a run of planters and made a short film of the process. If you look at the grain of the aluminum carefully, you can see how spinning the final detail of the form in the air rather than on the wooden mold results in a completely different finish on the flared neck.
Lead time 2-4 weeks.
