The Phytophiler No.2 (Mirrors) by Dossofiorito

Is it a science experiment? Is it a plant pot? Is it art? Hmm, can it be all three?

Have you properly studied the underside of a leaf, or the color of a newly formed bud? The Phytophiler series by Dossofiorito is composed of hand-thrown terracotta pots and the aforementioned appendages, and, after you add in the plant, you’ll be ready to “reflect on the larger emotional connections that link us to the natural world.”
