Large lotus flower pendant/brooch

I had the most beautiful cut amethyst that my father cut for my mother many moons ago before he died. I've always felt so precious about it, not wanting to undermine its beauty and significance. Finally it came together in a beautiful pendant that can also be worn as a brooch. A significant piece of jewellery for my mom that she could certainly enjoy and be proud of.

I love this piece and its form that seems do interesting from different angles. It reminds me of my large lotus flower ring. And I've been wanting to make a similar piece for a while now.

Inspirational artists, images and objects

I've just found a catalogue for designer furniture by Weylandts that reminded me of one of my favourite artist: Andy Goldsworthy.

I love how his works are captured on film and immortalised. But nature inevitable engulfs and surrounds his works of art, or does his work engulf and surround nature?

The contrast of the red leaves in a cool quite pool seems to echo in my mind. A play of contrasting colours and textures.

..... There seems to be a lot in the way of advertising and imagery that reminds me of his work lately, even some of my own work as it develops from past ideas into refined forms that i find myself creating. Perhaps its time to do a little reflecting, on the artist, the ideology and some of my own themes.

Work spaces help to fill the well.

I often feel quite wiped out after putting together an exhibition. But my seemingly crowded work space helps to distract and trick my mind into engaging in new creations.
It helps to fill my visual well, once more.
