The LA Times has finally featured a full exploration of the phenomenon of planting cactus and other succulents in beer cans, a classic american trope if ever there was one, although the little umbrella is more of a mediterranean touch.
Inman recycles all-American beer cans as planters for the low-water sculptural plants, starting at $8 apiece. She also turns more elaborate cactus and succulent arrangements into what she calls “narrative scenes with animal figurines, cast iron statuary or modern design elements” that start at $30. Inman can be found most Saturdays at Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage.
The other pictures in the article are more, shall we say, whimsical.
