Enhance your decor with this unique and exotic contemporary pot.

Handcarved from native sesse wood, it's ideal for decorative use, or as a holder for a small flowering plant. Each pot is individually made by artisans of Ghana and stands approximately 20 inches tall. This piece is designed for indoor use.

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.

  • 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!

  • Beautiful Pot
    Verified Purchase

    I love wood carved african products/art. This is a beautiful flower pot. It is exactly as described.

  • Fun, unusual African flower pot
    Verified Purchase

    Smaller than anticipated and can only hold a fairly small plant. When it arrived, the bottom was very uneven and made it wobbly. I sanded it to make it even and it's fine now, no more wobbling. Despite the problems, I just love this piece - it's unusual and interesting and I enjoy looking at it. I especially like that it has flaws in the carving - it looks hand carved and somewhat primitive. Better than pictured because actual finish is not as shiny as it appears.

    Very Unique. Its a nice piece.Colors fit my decor perfectly and I liked the actual wood carving technique

  • Interesting piece
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Medium Flower Pot - for hardwood floors only
    Verified Purchase

    I've enjoyed this piece for several years. Unfortunately, I have wall to wall carpet so I've had a problem with pieces of this nature standing up. This particular one is sort of light weight so I didn't use it for a plant because it kept toppling over. I use it in my entry for holding keys, sunglasses, etc. The slightest bump it still topples over, but since the content is not dirt, I don't mind picking it up. Being in the entry way it makes for a good conversation piece. The appearance is just as pictured.

    I absolutely love these. I purchased them years ago and they still look great. I placed pine cones in them and it looks great. Icing on the cake was when I discovered that I'm 37 percent Ghanian. I have two of them- one on each side of my television. They are not small but medium sized.

  • African Wood Plant Stand
    Verified Purchase

    Product is all wood, but unexpectedly small for a plant stand. You will need the perfect area in order to show off the plant stand so that it is not missed.

  • Unique planter
    Verified Purchase

    Planted with a vieny plant that drapes out of the container, it looks great in our sunroom. Th proportions are a bit different than picturd. It mght be the perspective of the picture or a result of the handcrafted nature where each one is different. The head and the container above are smaller in proprotion to the base and arms but I like it as it is, also.

    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.

  • Planter
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    We purchased this planter a few years ago from Overstock and it's still going strong. I wouldn't suggest putting a real plant in it. We have an artificial plant in it and lightly dust it. To keep it shinning, just use a wood cleaner once a while.

  • Disappointed
    Verified Purchase

    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:(.

Questions & Answers

  • Q:

    "How does the water drain from this planter?"

    • A:

      The water comes from the bottom of the planter. You would want to let it drain first, then set it back on the hands.
