'bour·geon' Series

Recovered retaso from Typhoon Haiyan are made to these limited edition sculptures under the 'bour·geon' Series.

Like the resilience of the Filipino spirit, these normally discarded fabrics made from banana/abaca fibers by Ditta Sandico are sculpted to represent the grace of our great people. Like petals in poetic bloom, the sculptures represent growth amidst adversities.

The sculptures are now part of the Philippine Embassy in Australia - Ambassador's Official Residence and The Philippine Consulate General's Office in New York's permanent collections.
