Capturing

Tonight I’m playing around with different ways of displaying the little porcelain orbs I made a few years ago. When lit from within, the orbs become translucent and the most intricate areas on the surface are illuminated. While the whole piece is aesthetically pleasing, it’s these areas of ornate detail that are the highlight…and they can only be seen when lit this way. I originally displayed them on a black velvet fabric but had some critical feedback that mostly suggested I never display them that way again. Tonight I combined some of my favorite materials and photographed the results, remembering a suggestion I’ve heard on multiple occasions: maybe my artwork is shown via photographs.
