MATching is a series of handmade plant-pots that reference the tension between the natural organic matter of the plant and the artificial environmentally damaging properties of the material that conventionally holds it. Made by pouring the pigmented plastic liquid into wooden molds, the resultant vessels each have their own color, shape, and surface.
The plastic used for MATching is degradable, non-toxic bioplastics.
The first series has been developed under the technical advice of biotech specialist Prof. Rajni Hatti-Kaul at Lund University.
