Spanish Moss


Size: 10.25" x 7.5" x 2.25" in. Medium: Ceramic
Wall Sculpture inspired by a scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a Spanish moss leaf trichome (Tillandsia usneoides). Spanish Moss is not a moss but an epiphytic bromeliad, a plant which lives on other plants but does not harm them. The leaf trichomes are scale-like in appearance, used for water absorption.
Each piece has a hole in the back that is fit to sit on a small nail hammered at a 45 degree angle for secure hanging.
