Pull + Push create sweet little planters and incense burners from concrete. Each one is shaped like a house, apartment block or factory tower, complete with miniature windows and - in the case of the incense burners - a chimney for the smoke to escape! Each piece is made by hand in Kyoto, Japan, and is designed to interact with the environment, so that it will naturally weather with age.
They make other fun things from concrete, too - take a look at their website for the full range (if like me you don't speak Japanese you can content yourself with the pretty pictures!).
I've ordered some planters and incense burners for Mr Sparrow and am expecting them to arrive any day now - I can't wait!
