PodArt is the creative brainchild of Natalia Szidon. Natalia’s striking, large-scale wall art is fashioned from locally foraged finds and other natural elements—notably pods—and interlaid with surprising additions like gems and metals.
“To me, the ‘pod’ in PodArt represents both the end and the beginning of the growing cycle and the inspiration for my work. PodArt evolved naturally from my life-long love affair with plants, flowers and custom jewelry. Working with an array of shapes and textures like seeds and nuts, twigs and feathers, lichen and moss, beads and glass, I create natural, multi-dimensional collages. Although most of the elements in my work come straight from nature, I like to adorn them with unexpected touches. At some level, PodArt is the culmination of my love for gardening and my life experiences in floral, interior and jewelry design. I hope you enjoy my PodArt compositions as much as I enjoy creating them.”
