Coal Planter


Commissioned by Sight Unseen for the OFFSITE Field Studies exhibition, the coal planter is a collaboration with Boyd Holbrook with inspiration from his father, a coal miner for 40 years in Kentucky, and the hardships and devastation on the families of “coal country.” An embodiment of the material tied to life and growth, the planter is unexpected, functional, and beautiful, made entirely of coal.
