Two resilient paper pulp vessels held in frames made from repurposed and recycled materials. There is a choice of combination of frames. The frames are:
- -aluminium band frame (hammered texture and copper rivets)
- aluminium disc frame (brushed pattern of circular marks)
- printed nylon offcuts & spiralled wire frame (recycled spiralled wire has a plastic coating, this can be in various colours)
- CDs frame (four CDs stacked together for rigidity). There is a choice of colour and finish for the CDs frame - silver or blue/silver, brushed-matt or shiny, please go to https://balanced-earth.co.uk/product/cds-frame

The aluminium frames have been finished with microcrystalline wax to inhibit tarnish and watermarks. These vessels hang from a stainless steel looped and hooked branch which is suspended from a curved stainless steel rod within an oak mount. Concealed keyhole brackets holds this close to the wall.
The vessels are handmade with four layers of paper pulp, allowed to dry between layers within purpose built moulds this makes a rigid form. Given two coats of wax/oil inside and outside, this seals the vessels and allows them to be microporous. On the outside of the vessels, the matt grey finish of the newsprint pulp remains. Choose from:
-large - 10 cm inner diametre x 10 cm length
-large-Long - 10 cm inner diametre x 11 cm length
-medium - 9.5 cm inner diametre x 11 cm length
-medium-long - 9 cm inner diametre x 12.5 cm length
-medium-short - 9 cm inner diametre x 9.5 cm length
The small vessels fit the CDS frame and aluminium disc frame, the two choices are:
-small - 7.5 cm inner diametre x 10.5 cm length
-small-long - 7.5 cm inner diametre x 11.5 cm length
The vessels are not perfectly symmetrical as the original form was handmade with clay from which the mould was made. We like our vessels like this and hope you do too. Please note, images for each variation will be based on the frames, however the size of the vessel in the image may differ from your selection. When this is the case, it will be indicated. There are images of each vessel size.
All materials (with the exception of the stainless steel) are recycled and upcycled, whilst care is taken in making, there may be fine marks in the materials (they've had a previous life), however we've judged these in no way detract from the elegance of the Balanced-Earth plant-mobiles.
Includes soil mix for planting your choice of succulent, two dome-headed screws and rawplugs. Plant is not included. Suggestions for trailing succulent plants are to follow.
