PLANTATION was developed in recognising the potential use of abandoned
drinking glasses. The result is a porcelain object that rests in a common glass,
which allows the observation of the growing process of plants, both its stem
as well its root.
An investigation into the recycled function for the glass was inspired by debris
of Londonís streets. Subsequently the many shapes of these discarded items have
led to an assortment of handmade parts that can be inserted into a variety of glass
vessels sizes. These unique porcelain components are suitable for growing plants
and when turned upside down can be used as a mini greenhouse, ideal during
seed germination. This product allows the consumer the opportunity to reinvent
the function of an ordinary glass vessel and give it a new context and purpose.
