Welcome to plant.metal, a unique collection of hand-crafted, welded steel, sculptural plant holders designed to bring life to your spaces while promoting sustainability. Created with passion and a keen eye for design, each plant holder in the plant.metal collection incorporates up-cycled materials such as scrap metal and repurposed materials, making every piece not only beautiful but also eco-friendly.

Unique Design: Every plant holder is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, crafted with materials that are readily available, resulting in individual shapes and designs – no two are alike. The integration of reclaimed metal not only ensures each piece is unique but also promotes more sustainable practices by giving new life to materials that would otherwise go to waste.
