Growth

Stainless steel

Growth was inspired by the life cycle of the fruiting bodies from the fungal species Coprinus sp. This delicate form of nature is portrayed by welded stainless steel wire structures depicting the growth and change in anatomy as the mushroom matures and decays.

The fungal kingdom can teach us a lot about symbiotic relationships and the important role they play in the survival of this planet. Fungi break down and recycle organic matter, releasing nutrients that benefit other living organisms. Life as we know it would not exist without fungi.
