The bio page of his Etsy store simply reads: "He : is a schooled architect whose interests span from clothing design to painting to electronics." Somehow that seems like the right amount of information from an artist who brings us nature in a minimalist form. Using simple materials like moss, beeswax, dirt and cardboard, this Brooklyn based artist produces 100% original, made to order pieces. Click through the jump to see more...

This piece is entitled, "Mimic." Like the artists other pieces, it is said to be a geometric entity to occupy a desk, a dresser or any space in your life.

This one is called, "Magnet." The outer casing is made of recycled cardboard coated in beeswax. The beeswax adds strength as well as a pleasant smell. The top has two wells; one filled with beeswax, the other with a swatch of moss.

"Kinetic," is the name of this one. It contains two wells; one is filled with soil while the other is a swatch of moss. The piece is two separate pieces and can be rolled or stacked.

This piece is titled, "Three." The three wells are filled with either beeswax, moss or dirt and helps to bring a little bit of the outside in when you can't get out to enjoy it.
