Lily Pond is a series of trusses that connect and lift a cluster of lily plants and egg masses into a geometric arrangement. Wire cables attached to counterweights pull the pliant truss into a flat plane.
The pond’s perimeter is structural tubing. The wire cables that wrap over and below the tubing intend the flat plane of water level.
Lily Pond places ceramics in tension instead of compression - whereas compression typically serves the structural attributes of ceramics.
proposed media: porcelain, Egyptian faience, mortar, stainless steel wire & fittings
