URNs

 

The urns Anja Roemer makes are all inspired by forms in nature that relate to the eternal cicle of decay and renascence.

Fruits and seeds as symbols for the moment of transition

 

 

 

 

Poppy

 

I used the beautiful poppy, symbol for temporary sleep or anaesthesia, as a model for an urn.

It is an ingenious masterpiece of nature, a true example of natural architecture.

When the seed has ripened, the segments in the top dry up and then open.

Everytime a breath of wind shakes the plant, seeds will be projected far away.
