Cone plant support by Michael Anastassiades.
Part of the Floating Forest Series, 2015.
“A few years ago I saw an acorn vase by Estrid Ericson, produced by Svenskt Tenn. I loved the simple poetry of an object of that nature, growing a single acorn. It was the hope for early spring, especially coming from a country with such heavy and dark winters. I became obsessed with the simple idea of suspending a seed on the surface of water; submerged, just to the right level for it to germinate. All with the possibility of being able to support itself in the absence of soil, that would allow it to stand upright; exposed, all in clear view.” Michael Anastassiades.
Michael Anastassiades supports Spring’s first green buds to sprout. With Cone, which is hand made from solid brass, Anastassiades captures the first few steps of the oak tree’s germination process. Cone delicately suspends the acorn above the surface where it is encouraged to grow.
Handmade from solid brass and engraved with the makers mark.
