Spores by Steve Bicknell – £6,500

Spores – fallen pink oyster mushroom

This piece is based on change over time, with the inside of the mushroom containing pink oyster spores. It’s highly unlikely and improbable that the spores would germinate, as the piece breaks apart over the next 1,000 years, however the concept is part of the art.
However, even though I will never see the piece in its final form, having made the piece it’s easy to imagine the form it could take as it breaks down. My imagination takes me to the images of fallen planes found years later in jungles with peeling paintwork and vegetation growing through the cockpit! Deterioration over time often provides great beauty.

Price at £6,500
