From Russian designer Katerina Kopytina this series of hanging pots was designed as a dedication to the life forms still waiting to be discovered. The series is entitled “Kuiper Belt” and is named after the part of the solar system, which when discovered, was responsible for Pluto losing its status as a planet. Each pot represents a new form of life denoted by its symbol found on the bottom of the pot.

The number of known Kuiper Belt objects has increased to over a thousand since it was discovered back in 1992, and there are more than 100,000 others thought to exist. In addition to objects, scientists also point to the high probability of there being at least one more giant planet yet to be discovered. However, some believe we never will because sunlight does not reach it.
