Mushroom as Material
Mariana has been experimenting with mushroom material as a sustainable alternative to plastics and foams. With the firm belief that mushrooms can and will save the world, she works with different mushroom strains and explores the possibilities that this material has to offer.
Mushroom mycelium is incredibly versatile and offers many possibilities as a bio-material. From insulating houses, to making surfboards, for product padding and even mushroom leather. It is 100% biodegradable and fire resistant and so the possibilities for mushroom mycelium are endless. Many biotechnology companies and artists are exploring this new revolutionizing material.
Mariana works in a variety of media, in her art she works with Nature and the elements. Creates works on paper, sculptures and most of the jewelry you will find at Manifacto.
