This fall, I was looking for something to hang in my kitchen window to provide a little green through the winter. When I went to the local garden center, I spotted an air plant that looked exactly like an octopus and decided that I’d give it (her) a good home. I used the same hoop-and-dowel technique that I used for my Lamp Called Wanda and came up with the OctoPlanter.
Arial seems to be happy. :)
The owner of the garden center liked it and asked me to make 10. Rather than drilling hundreds of holes, and cutting miles of lines on my scroll saw, I emailed the CAD file to a pal with a laser and he knocked them out in an hour. Another good friend to have!
