The cocoon is composed of silk that is made in glands within the body of the silkworm. In commercial silk farming, silk thread (usually totaling hundreds of meters from each cocoon) is spun off from the cocoons after they've been boiled, but Ango is using the totally unprocessed cocoons. The diffuser is formed of a random configuration of silk cocoons, each of which is attached to a hand soldered wire matrix. The process starts by attaching the silk cocoons to strands of wire. The first strands are then attached to a hand brushed stainless steel frame, and the layers of silk cocoon slowly built up, checking the overall form of the piece all along the way. Full Moon suspension gives diffused light.
