Little Concrete Jungle

Michelle Richardson Little Concrete Jungle

Michelle Richardson started Little Concrete Jungle after she decided it was time to bring the outside in by creating pots for small interior urban jungles 3 years ago. By combining her love of plants, gardening, creating and getting messy with her love of industrial interiors, the Little Concrete Jungle range was developed.

Little Concrete Jungle started out with a single small pot made using a recycled thrift cup as a mould. The range has now grown to include many styles of pots (and different sizes), candleholders, magnets, and trays and there are more that are still being developed. Little Concrete Jungle has a loyal following of people who want to bring the outdoors inside but don’t have a lot of space.

Michelle works out of her home-based workshop set in her garden in North West Brisbane. Her products are for sale through Etsy, local BrisStyle markets and by appointment.
