Barnacled Scallop Planter

Not For Sale
Product Description
The forgotten shell of a scallop houses a family of barnacles, that create small holes in which to plant tiny cacti, dead pieces of coral, succulents, and other plants, such as the Tillandsia bulbosa from the photgraphs. The large clam was digitally scanned, while the barnacle shapes were sculpted by hand. Arrangement designed by Birch & Bone.
The Samsara Series of glazed porcelain planters is composed of sculptures of organic shapes that act as fossilized vessels for new life. The various forms echo ideas of life, death, and the cycles of nature. Husks, bones, shells, pods, carcasses, they all carry the power of something no longer living but able to sustain new life in a cradle of fertile soil.

Saṃsāra (Sanskrit), is the repeating cycle of birth, life and death (reincarnation) as well as one's actions and consequences in the past, present, and future in Hinduism, Buddhism, Bon, Jainism, Taoism and Sikhism.
