Efflorescence’ was inspired by the beauty of aquatic flora that is destroyed by plastic products and harmful industries. We had seen many plastic spoons go to waste in our canteen and wanted to use them in our creation. Plastic utensils harm aquatic life, and as lotus flowers grow in water, we wanted to show how these harmful materials can be created into something that represents sustainability, therefore we chose to recreate the lotus in our design. We wanted to create a delicate design that used a material that causes destruction on the natural beauty it represents.
