Part 9: Rusty the bunny planter box

Patrick BlampiedCustomer Project Gallery

Here’s another artistic creation from Russell Feldman: The rusty bunny planter box. Similar to the giant fish however perhaps not so ambitious, the bunny has been created from some scrap box steel that was lying around the place. With space for a couple of natives poking out the top it’s an interesting piece and far better than dropping the steel off at Sims metal round the corner from us in Thompsons Rd.

Russell Feldman has literally covered his Torquay property with showpieces that have been hand-made from new and secondhand materials. Many pieces have come from our yard however a lot have also been sourced from country trips and bits and pieces that were being thrown out by friends and family.

This is the seventh in a multi-part series covering perhaps the best example we’ve seen of DIY creativity on a single property.
