grassland-06Grassland brings you objects made of grass.  Using real grass in wall applications, giant orbs, and yes even a giant sheep.

The grass grows not on soil but on various materials – using water, light and the power of the seeds only. The roots intertwine and form a joint area that, with the aid of the special technique of drying, will stick even on stainless steel. The grass is conserved through the process of drying only.

The objects age and fade from green to shades of brown over the life of the products. I like the idea of adding new pieces over time so the stages of life are staggered.

Depending on the incidence of light, the colours can take up to two years to change. In addition, the grass follows the law of gravity and bends down slowly. After three to four years, the appearance of the grass hardly changes any further.
