Cocoon Vase
Cocoon Vase

Cocoon vase is inspired by the most magical change in nature - the life course. The process from making a cocoon vase to put it to use is just like a insect’s life story, and in the end, it presents the beauty of symbiosis. cocoon vase is made of hot melt adhesive. In the beginning a lump of ice was used to be the cast, and the hot melt adhesive was dropped randomly like the larva make a cocoon to cover the ice. After the ice melt, the vase remained like a proof of growing. Furthermore, cocoon vase can spread out more vitality with flowers in it, just like the eastern cordyceps have symbiotic relationship between plants and animals.
