Skermunkil Bettie Head Planters


Skermunkil Design Studio is made up of Marietjie Beeslaar and Rory Mountjoy, a husband and wife team who work from their studio in Muizenberg, Cape Town. They’re known for their striking jewellery, but also make and design interesting porcelain pieces, like these Bettie Head Planters. ‘I’ve used the porcelain heads before for lights and I like them a lot. For a while they were just standing around my studio and I thought they would be brilliant with plants hanging out of them. A little bit weird and creepy, but I like it, especially with airplants because it gives them a nice sculptural feeling,’ Marietjie comments. The Bettie Head Planters, R350, come with the chains and hooks, but plants are not supplied. Find Skermunkil jewellery at the Neighbourgoods Markets in Cape Town and Joburg, or check out their blog eendagopnreendag.blogspot.com for a stockist near you.
