Formations are a collection of amorphous bubbles made by dropping hot gathers of molten glass onto a surface and inflating them with compressed air. These pieces are an exploration of temporality and the process is an act of discovery and surrender.
Their process and visual outcome reference happenings in nature. They can be utilized to hold water, and in so, foster and develop plant life and small ecosystems that will change and evolve through time.
Design - Each piece includes two different sized openings for air flow, for easy water filling, cleaning and to hold different sizes of plant stems.
Install - Horizontal drops lie flat on any [table-top] surface. Vertical drips include a lateral hole for hanging and are mounted on a 1.5” stainless steel screw. Drips can be installed on wood, drywall, metal, concrete or acrylic.
Orientation - Both designs are offered with 3 alternative opening: either on the left, center or right.
Maintenance - Water needs to be added weekly or as moisture evaporates. Water replacement is necessary every 2-4 weeks or depending on environmental conditions to maintain cleanliness,
Planting options - Can grown any kind of ivy, bamboo, pothos, fern, grass, papyrus, exotic angel and spider plants, begonia, geranium and herbs such as mint, oregano, basil, rosemary, lavender, sage. Can also be used to sprout and root small leaves or temporarily place flowers.
Lifespan - With proper care and maintenance plants can grown inside the Formations indefinitely. With time, the roots will grow and take over the entire interior of the vessel, rendering the plant fully mature.
