Palm Seed Pod

The Palm Seed Pod Collection is based upon the date palm's seed pod's natural tones and hues and produces a range of color and design. A fresh perspective in contemporary art from Robert Neff.


During July on Florida’s Suncoast, the date palm trees have multiple seed pods. As the seeds mature. they turn from green to vibrant orange.

I am fascinated by nature’s designs and brilliant patterns and colors. This led me to conduct a photographic study of the palm seed pod. One of the photos caught my eye and became the basis for the Palm Seed Pod Collection.

The date palm tree used for this design study is located just outside The Don Cesar’s Beach Guest Suites on Gulf Boulevard on St Pete Beach, Florida.


There are four unique and distinct volumes:

Volume 1, Base. The original concept used the orange palm seed pod to create contemporary art design that captured the mind.

Volume 2, Circle Design. The vision quickly changed as I discovered interesting patterns and designs. This work developed into the circle design. The patterns and colors provide a depth of field that draws the mind into the work.

Volume 3, Pink Exploration. This series expands upon Volume 2’s circle concept, but uses pink as the base color to explore shadows and textures.

Volume 4, Open Circle Arrays. The work expands upon Volume 2’s circle concept. This uses circle arrays to build a basis for a complex study. In addition, fashion colors are used to explore art and design.
