Would you just look at this beauty! Thanks to the amazing @gergelykisslaczay for sending some plates of A. Mellea, aka Honey fungus.

To anyone who hasn't worked with mushrooms in the past, this is one of the most interesting yet deadly species of fungi. When active, the rhizomorphs are bioluminescent and are also one of the strongest. Soldiers used to harvest these fibres to stitch lost buttons back on.

The uncanny lookalike to something out of stranger things isn't too far fetched from the real thing. Honey fungus, when introduced to a forest, Will rip apart trees and spread like wildfire in an untouched woodlands, something that means extreme consideration has to be taken when propagating these in a lab.

Nature can be a designer's best friend as well as a brilliant point of inspiration. It would be silly to think that our short time span to design objects and processes could ever begin to match with mother nature's billions of years of practice.

When you're next walking through a forest, take the time to slow down and wander and you'll be amazed at the things you would usually miss.

No better feeling than finding out that your strain of fungi finally overcomes a hurdle. 
One method of training fungi involves a process similar to how vaccinations work, by introducing a sample of material/contaminants that you want to target, the mycelium will slowly learn how to fight and break down the material.

Test samples like this, if done properly, can stay dormant for weeks to months before the fungi eventually cracks the magic method and bursts into action, and once that happens, it's time to clone and re-run the whole experiment.

Began reading this amazing book and I can't believe how much it expands your knowledge and appreciation of forests and the creatures that reside within.

Whilst reading this, I've discovered an uncanny similarity between the symbiotic relationship between fungi-flora and how Natura as a company operates. I'm hoping share my ideas with you in the next few days, but until then, have a good weekend!

Big changes coming to my Instagram...! People who have talked to me will know that it's been an ambition to start up a design consultancy and will be partnering up with the talented @efe.designs to bring our ideas into the world.
.
The page will stay relatively the same par a name/logo change but expect to see a more industrial design style with some of our products as Sam brings in his technical prowess.
.
We hope that you stay along for the ride as we try to use the environent around us as inspiration for creating beautiful products that don't harm the world we live in. Expect to see us in up and coming exhibitions!

Hunting for fungi is a lot more enjoyable with friends... even if it's a trusty truffle snuffler, who never complains about staying in the forest for hours.

Even when there's physical obstacles fighting against them, fungi still finds a way to push past it and flourish... We could certainly learn a few things from them.

Flattest F. fomentarius that I've seen! Mushroom hunting is at its lowest time in the UK but you can always find a Polypore or two to photograph on your walks.

Another one of the samples from the mycoremidiation project. This isolation of mycelium extracts the red dye but then expresses it through it's hyphae. (You can see the colour tint very slightly through this shot.)
.

Paul Stammets has envisioned this type of process to be used to extract minerals and elements which can then be refined back to virgin molecules... imagine a mining process where you grow mushrooms in mineral rich soil, to which you collect and process the mushrooms!

Making leaps and bounds on some of the projects that I have started. The pictures below are an example of mycelium's brilliant, but random, power to adapt. Both plates below were inoculated on the same substrate (MEA) and were dyed bright red with colouring.

One promising feature of mycelium is it's ability to learn how to break down specific molecules, especially hydrocarbons, and are often attracted to them for their high energy potential. Simulating these molecules with the red dye, you can see how the plate on the left is ahead of the right in digesting the red dye, having a higher nutritional content to the agar. The application of this method will help humans clean up oil spills, heavy metal soil contamination, pesticide residuess; the list goes on and on.

'A fungal landscape...' Mycelium and mushrooms are one of the most overlooked biological systems that we know. It's common knowledge that a walk through a forest can see us stepping on thousands of miles of mycelium networks, but yet we never see this magic.

We invite you into a window of mycelium, each one as unique as a fingerprint, as a response to it's changing environment. It allows you to explore the most bizarre textures and shows that mushrooms aren't something to be fearful of, but amazed by.

If you are interested in this product, contact algranter@outlook.com. They can be built to fit any size, shape or preference upon request.

Winter time with mycelium really slows down as temperatures drop; stock and products take their time, but it seems like a way that the fungi forces you to take your time to refresh and reboot your processes and plan for the year ahead.

Beginning to move into a prototyping stage for a lot of the products we have planned so we can hit the summer running.

'From spoon to bowl...' We undervalue what trees do for our planet; they store carbon, supply us with the air we breathe and support the wildlife we see. Carving an object from timber should be seen as a privilege, but to see the amount of wasted potential from the wood shavings goes against honouring that.

Whilst I've been learning how to carve, I have been accumulating all the shavings which have been destined to be transformed using fungi to give this material a new lease of life. This should be proof that one man's trash can be another man's treasure.

One of the lights decided that it wanted to begin fruiting over Christmas. The white bulge in the centre is new growth, focusing it's energy and mass to produce a polypore conk in order to drop it's spores and reproduce; haven't experienced this before, but I must of had the conditions just perfect for this guy.
