International Design Contest 2010
Countries and nations living around Mediterranean Sea are very different in their culture, traditions and religion. However there are few universal factors of existence which are similar to all of them and affecting the day-to-day living. This factor is fresh water. Actually low supply of the fresh water.Hydroponics is one of the easiest solutions to solve this problem. Hydroponics allows not only save water but to extend borders of economy to design. Proposed design of a plant pot allows to the viewer not only to view the green lush leaves of the tree but also its amazing root system which is actually the most important part of any plant. My main material is glass blowing. I constantly search for a ways to combine traditional glass blowing with contemporary art and design.
