Weekly Art: String Gardens


//sources 1, 2//
Dutch artist Fedor van der Falk created these conceptual planters, which are now available to buy in Pompon, Amsterdam. String Gardens turn crochet string baskets, plaster, soil, moss and beautiful plants into gravity-defying, orb-like gardens and trees. 

If only I had room for a floating tree in my living room... But the smaller versions are slightly more realistic for home living. Even the illustrated care sheets are pretty! 

Nowhere near Amsterdam in the near future? Never Fear, you can try the technique out yourself with this DIY from Design Sponge
