Phil Ross: Yamanaka Collection

$300.00

Resident artist Phil Ross grew a series of fungal furniture at the workshop in Fall 2012. All pieces were grown in a clean room constructed on site and the furniture was dried in our kiln. 

The Yamanaka collection owe their name to Shigeru Yamanaka, a Japanese scientist who described how fungal cells can be used as a natural binding agent for different materials.

Each piece is unique, priced according to size.
