HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
hello there... 1st post for the new year and I'm offering something I recently found and had saved... I liked this thought found through the artist's website.
This stunning work is by artist Ruth Asawa - reads more here at Community of Creatives - San Fransisco Visual Creative community 1945 to 1970. Ive found seed pods that resemble this form quite closely and have loved drawing them.... so this is such a treat discover. More Seed -related discoveries can be found on this post here.

The website contains many links to her extraordinarily interesting story and involvements.
This lead me to recall the extraordinary work of late Australian artist - Bronwyn Oliver.
