Design Details:

These little guys are a continuation of the original Mindcone concept. Pinecones are pretty neat little (some of them not so little at all, check out the Sugar Pine’s cones) contraptions by nature. Their armored scales protect the inner seeds, and open in different circumstances to spread the seeds and allow for new growth- some even needing the heat of fire to open. The Pineal Gland at the base and center of our brains, is shaped like a pinecone (hence the name) and plays an important role in sensing light and releasing the sleep hormone Melatonin. Its central location in the brain, its connection to light and sleep, as well as many esoteric and mystical traditions have dubbed the Pineal Gland the “Third Eye.”


I’ve recently been exploring these ideas of mental protection vs awakening. There are many functions of our brains that are wired for survival, but not necessarily happiness. The things that keep us alive and well, such as looking for danger at any possible moment, can also run on overdrive and keep us from seeing and experiencing life more fully. The Mini Mindcone celebrates those little ideas or those little moments, that just might open up something new inside, allowing us to see things perhaps a little differently and be a little more present. There’s always new ways to grow, and there’s always new questions to be asked.
