What makes a spiral so appealing? Is it the constant motion seemingly contained in a static item? The idea of a continuous path that may twist out of sight but always keeps you close? Curled inward like a hug, while reaching out to the beyond. (If that isn’t raising children in a nutshell, I don’t know what is.) Whether it’s found in nature or created from clay or silver or wire, today’s exhibit has got me in a tizzy.
Spinning In Spirals
I found this painting in a brand new shop! Thalia Orchid Paint is a scientist as well as an artist and her original acrylic painting, String Spiral, seems to be firmly rooted in both.
Check out Sea Horse Farm’s modern take on a floral headband. The purple wire is striking, fresh and filled with movement. See her shop for other colors and styles.
GP Yoga creates free spirited eco-friendly jewelry and clothing like these flared leg warmers. Made from upcycled fabric, I love the combination of lilac, purple, and mint.
Fragile and delicate, this bit of spiraling vine was captured by Janda Pix. Another new shop, he’s currently running a 25% off Grand Opening Sale!
Filled with serving pieces, sculptures, and decorative items, House of Ceramics favors low fire clay and thin glazes. This ceramic sphere has been carved with a spiral pattern. Don’t you want to feel the weight of it in the palm of your hand?
