An exploration of house plants as a category of furniture objects and props of nature. A series of house plants are soaked in glycerin (for preservation) and trapped between vacuum-formed plastic molds of themselves, suspended above a base of soil and epoxy. The plastic is welded together with a solvent and airtight. After several months, the plants have discolored but not decayed.
