Week 12~ Observe the Curve
“In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves.” ~Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
We move, live and love in curves. Arms, legs and bodies curve to propel us into the life around us. Branches of trees curve to embrace the breeze. Letters curve and form words. Curves can keep things apart, hold things together or create a path. This week take a moment to focus on all the different kinds of curves that surround you everyday.
My favorite curves are the ones with infinite possibility: those sweet rings created by my hand.
Spun brass, copper, silver
on the tinniest mandrels.
Precision and imperfection: individual rings
made to be joined together
