A $300 watering can may seem like an egregious purchase but the Min Watering Can makes a convincing argument with its stunning brass design and artisan wood handle. Created by Harnisch, a fourth-generation metal workshop run by two brothers, the all-brass watering was designed and conceptualized by Norwegian design firm Anderssen Voll.
The metal used in the can's construction is completely hand-spun, a technique that involves molding a solid sheet of brass or copper into a hollow form by hand. The use of brass also adds to the appeal of the Min Watering Can, as the material can develop a patina and become incredibly personalized after repeated uses.
The wooden handle was crafted from locally sourced hardwood and was selected thanks to its distinct grain. It features an incredibly organic shape and feels almost like the branch of a tree.
