The Story Behind the Product

Akwasi Agyeman was born into a family of 12 children in the small tribal village of Foase in Ghana, West Africa. The family was so poor that Akwasi was limited to only a 7th grade education in order to help his father farm to feed the family. In 7th grade his teacher asked each of them to make something for art class. Akwasi produced a Fertility Doll as his project and amazed the teacher. Akwasi knew then he had a natural talent for carving. After ten years and with the help of Fair trade Akwasi is now married with two handsome boys. He employs 15 people and has built a small three bedroom house for his family. Akwasi and his fellow artisans hope you enjoy their work.

  • Interesting piece

    Interesting piece of art. However, the space to put a plant is very an small. The pot size is about the size of a saucer. It is not made for medium/large planters, and it can be displayed with or without a plant. I put a small plant in mine and it is a conversational piece.

  • Positive review

    I have been looking for an African piece for the entrance area in my home. This is it! The item fits perfectly on the small table and catches the eye of those who enter. I'm trying to come up with an idea for the planter, since I can't seem to keep house plants alive. Love it.

  • Disappointed

    What I initially thought was a beautifully crafted flower pot turned out to be a flop. I purchased this item 3 weeks ago and I noticed that it has already started developing a long crack in the middle. I have no orher recourse but to throw it out as it has started leaking water when I water the plant. What a rip off:(.

  • Planter

    This planter is a wonderful addition to my many other "different" types of planters. I put a plastic liner in it and planted it with a feathery fern and spagnum moss and it looks great on my deck for the summer.

  • Wow, better than pictured. Made of one piece of wood. Very cute, alot of character!! I want another one!! The top is only 3-4 " deep, so I am going to use a black pot in the top. Excellent workmanship, Thanks again Overstock!
