Please use the drop-down menu to choose from these frames:
- -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 story of the materials can be found https://balanced-earth.co.uk/green-earth-balance/
The aluminium frames have been finished with microcrystalline wax to inhibit tarnish and watermarks.
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.
There are three lengths of stainless steel looped and hooked branch: 35 cm, 32 cm, 26 cm. These are approximate lengths as it is tricky to get precision when bending stainless steel rod by hand! Any of these lengths will look fine, however as a guide, start with a longer branch at the hanging point and progress to the shortest branch at the lowest point of your plant-mobile.
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 that these in no way detract from the elegance of the Balanced-Earth plant-mobiles.
A sufficient quantity of soil mix for planting your trailing succulent in your vessel will be provided for your choice of succulent. We do not provide the trailing succulents.
