A couple weekends ago, I was just casually perusing Mixture in Little Italy, SD and I was totally drawn to this bright yellow geometric metal planter. Next thing you know, I’m walking to my car with said planter in hand and completely smitten! (AND it came with the plants already planted!!) Woo hoo! (I instagrammed it here.)
After I came home, I wanted to find out who made this new piece of planter awesomeness and turns out they’re made by a local SD company called Breck Built. It’s part of his “Mostro Series“. According to Breck, the owner and artist behind Breck Built, these Mostro planters are “intended to confront what a planter can be… More than just the utility of a container, these sculptures physically instigate a dialog between man-made steel and the natural plant material within.” Well, all I have to say is this planter is beautiful and giving my patio a desperate punch of vivid color. Breck can even powder coat them in custom colors too!
