I am always taking notice of the subtleties around me as I walk or run around the city and the coast. There are so many amazing patterns casually juxtaposed on walls, sidewalks and trees. Some are naturally occurring while others quite deliberate and utilitarian perhaps unknowing of their aesthetic qualities. I love seeing these geometric and circular shapes and forms and try and snap them when I can and use later to inform plate designs.
such beauty and color and texture:
and shapes find their way to clay..
