While most people choose to display their plants in pots or vases, Fedor van der Valk has designed a series of self-supporting, hanging plant containers.

Van der Valk explains: “For a while I wanted to make animated videos with crocheted landscapes which were a kind of 3-dimensional spider webs covered in moss and grass. The idea was to create bonsai-esque plants. To keep the landscapes really airy, I decided to work with hanging plants.”
