While searching for the perfect home, I realized that the shell of the snail Canthareus aspersus,"scalariform" variant, defined best what I think of a perfect home. It is something that is not generally perfect, but perfect for you, something that serves your needs.
Inspired by the shell of the Canthareus aspersus snail,"scalariform" variant, I made three textile objects that each have their different disposition and colors, but that put together, complete each other, like friends do.
The three objects can be assembled in different ways and different places.
The blue-green object is 20 cm wide, 38 cm tall and 42 cm long.
The pink-green object is 30 cm wide, 49 cm tall and cm 40 long. The initial project for The perfect home was just this shell, but my first try didn't turn out like I planed, so the ideea of the Three friends came to mind, which could turn into Five friends in the future. The base of this object is inspired by yhe opening of the Adamsiella pearmanaeana snail shell. I like this kind of aperture because it makes the shell look like a hat.
 
The pink-blue object is 20 cm wide, 25 cm tall and 43 cm long. This was my first try for The perfect home. It didn't turn out perfect, as in "as planed", but it is my favorite of the three objects.
