Concept of artwork 設計理念:

PLANTATION is a series of porcelain elements designed for growing herbs and ornamental plants using the principles of hydroponics. Thanks to the use of only water and no soil, this method allows observing the growing process of both the stems and the roots of plants. The idea under Plantation is to upcycle old glasses. Use a glass you don't need anymore, top it with one of the four available PLANTATION shapes and enjoy your own mini-farm. PLANTATION is also a perfect solution for rooting plant grafts. Moreover, one of shapes has an additional function: when turned upside down, it becomes a mini green house, which can be used to germinate seeds. Other shape also works great as a flower vase, keeps flowers tight, shaping beautiful bouquet.

其他說明:

After an intense time of participating with her art installation in a number of international exhibitions and competitions the author has created a new PLANTATION design brand. Based on the principles of her original project, for which the artist collected abandoned drinking glasses in the streets of London, scrupulously documenting the process and hand-making ceramic elements to allow the observation of the growing process of plants. Photos 1.-4. shows the product. Photo 5. show art installation ( to have better idea from where the product came). This project came from the art field to the design field.

This is a great concept, very resonant for our contemporary society. Detailing and design results in a believable product concept.
