OOAK handmade merino wool cocoon with air plant in red and purple
The sculpted simplicity of the cocoon is achieved through slow felting of the wool fibers, totally malleable the cocoon is to encourage creativity and play. Each cocoon comes ready for display anywhere you wish to add a punch of color or oddity.
The cocoons are an ideal environment for your air plant specimens, letting enough day light, keeping moisture levels under control, and providing a cheery home for your plants no matter where and how you decide to display them!
The cocoons make for a stunning groupings, as "office plant buddies", or as wedding or party favors- this is a great way to give something handmade, green and unique. Let your imagination fly and suspend them off vertically using fishing wire close to a filtered light source; often we set them on the table as center pieces - the ways to present the cocoons are numerous.
Each cocoon is handmade and hand shaped by me from all natural merino wool raw fibers that after felting become these organic shapes- the beauty in creating these is letting each shape evolve from the process without forcing and constraining it, they are pliable, soft and organic. This bright color scheme will eventually compliment the colors of the blooms that most air plants produce.
