We saw this at an art gallery over the weekend and can’t decide. The Grassland Orb is real grass ball that hangs suspended from the ceiling. The grass is grown using only light and water, and is then dried. The transformation from lush green to straw-colored takes approximately two years. Prices range depending on size, $370-540.
So what do you think?
Grassland produces a variety of dried grass art:
‘What is special about them is that the grass changes from lush green to straw-colour. Observing the transformation of the object over time thus becomes a unique experience. The grass grows not on soil but on various materials – using water and light 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 dried grass objects are available in natural or varnished. All objects are unique natural products because of the individual growth of the grass.’
