How could we use the capability of sea salt to form strong structures?

To test the potential applications and strength of salt crystal formation on cotton wireframes, I designed and knitted a stool foundation for salt crystals to secure themselves on. 

In this project I explored a different way to create objects. Instead of traditional manufacturing techniques, I aim to use natural resources to control and fabricate objects.
