Betula, or birch tree, is one of my favorite trees. I chose to incorporate this in my series for its unique bark pattern that I could manipulate to give movement to a simple, cylindrical shaped vase.
Symbiosis is a visual commentary on the relationship between self and environment. The vessels act as a manmade element while each of the attached ornaments, inspired by local species, compliment the shape and movement of each piece. Each work reflects the impressionable and impactful nature of how mankind interacts with the natural world, and vice versa.
