Sleeping Ostrich - Terracotta

Sleeping Ostrich - Terracotta


This whimsical upside down sleeping ostrich pot is one of a kind and a modern take on traditional wood carving found across sub-Saharan Africa.


It's a lovely decor object, perfect for gifting and storing small items. 


We've seen Ostriches in the wild in Kenya, and as the fastest and largest bird on land, they can be quite imposing! Full of character, the ostrich is a beautiful and fun bird to liven up a shelf. This shade of terracotta and baked clay tones warm up any room to an earthy texture. 


Every pot is individually hand carved in Malawi out of natural jacaranda wood and painted using a lead free matt paint. It comes packaged in a sturdy box using recycled card.


The organisation who produces these for us helps the artisans build sustainable businesses by lending them interest free loans to grow their enterprises. This ensures age-old techniques survive for future generations.
