Melt'n Dig -Pots made of styrofoam, shaped with hot soil
Motohiro Komatsu (TANK)
These plant pots are made using a simple method: heating soil in a pot on a stove and pouring it over layered Styrofoam.
Styrofoam has a low melting point of 175° and can be cut with an electric heating wire. The idea began when I started to think about whether I could make something using this unique property.
The soil's heat gouges the shapes of the contours, and the melting process stops slowly, resulting in slightly rounded edges.
The light blue color specific to Styrofoam goes well with the green of the plants and functions as a color accent in the interior design.
Material: Styrofoam, Soil
