Delicate Seeds Arranged Into Undulating Organic Sculptures

Seedscapes is a series of meticulously arranged organic sculptures by England-born artist Gowri Savoor. To create each natural formation, Savoor attaches a variety of plant and fruit seeds–including apple, pumpkin, and sunflower–to the ends of long stem wire and arranges them in undulating curves on a solid base.

Natural patterns emerge from the very purposeful distribution of seeds to create a beautiful sense of flowing movement. The geometric arrangements create captivating spatial relationships that explode from the wall or cast long shadows along the floor.

There is a sense of delicate ephemerality that emanates from each unique piece. "In themselves they're very fragile,” says Savoor, “No matter what I do, the pieces will continue to decay. There's a human sadness as well, that everything will eventually die."
