This monarch chrysalis is in a transformative state, motionless now, but ready to emerge. This garden-inspired vessel is made of recycled industrial wool felt materials from Submaterial.
Part of a collection of works by Albuquerque artist Molly Zimmer, the vessels are textured portals into a playful, whimsical, and bright garden realm. The textile assemblages aim to immerse the viewer within the sensual comforts and protection of the garden. Learn more about this collaboration here.
