The Basin Mod Dish by Steel Life is of generous proportions, offering the opportunity to fill it with a cornucopia of desert plants, decorative items or a colorful display of delectable fruit.
This Mod Dish honors the Deschutes River Basin, the lifeblood of Central Oregon, which is near the home of Designer Shannon Lester. Shannon realizes how important water resources are to a prosperous life, especially in dry, desert climates like hers.
Offered in Citrine (red), Frost, Sky blue, Verdant (lime green) and Citrus (orange). Stand made from locally salvaged metal with custom cast rubber footings.
Usually ships in 2-4 weeks.
About Steel Life:
Steel Life's Shannon Lester is a landscape designer in Bend, Oregon. Shannon designed commercial and urban residential landscapes in the greater Portland area for 5 years before settling in Bend and starting her own landscape design-build company in 2004 with her husband, Drew Lester. Shannon has discovered a need for modern and architecturally interesting planters and home decor over the past two years, which has led to her new product line, Steel Life.
Lester places great importance on using American-made, raw and upcycled materials whenever possible and tries to support thePacific Northwest’s economy by working directly alongside her team of local artisans and small business owners.
“Growing up in one of the few, solar powered homes in Southern Oregon at the time, I have always considered myself a preservationist of the natural environment,” says Lester. “I remember hammering together creations out of my father’s wood scraps from his shop. Still after 30 years, I am rummaging through unwanted materials that can be up cycled into desirable, functional products.”
Shannon is an active garden blogger for Blooming Desert’s Daily Dirt and enjoys connecting with other garden enthusiasts through social networks facebook and pinterest. Shannon has also been a contributor to This Old House magazine, Landscaping Network.com and Fine Gardening magazine.

We visited Just Modern in Palm Springs a few days after their grand opening and found a brilliant array of unique home accessories.
We loved the bold colors of Steel Life's Mod Dishes and chose a striking blue basin as a centre-piece for my breakfast table.
Just Modern's new showroom is definitely worth a visit when you're in Palm Springs.
