If you've ever heard of the Fibonacci Sequence (building upon the sum of the preceding two units) or the Golden Ratio, using asymmetrical proportions sometimes just feel "right" to the eye. Its proportions can be found everywhere, in flowers, trees, galaxies, shells, tornados, even our inner ear. I love this concept--it played a major role in shaping my artistic philosophy, but I'll have to save that discussion for another entry...
I've been fortunate to come across some amazing stamp art to incorporate into my fine silver pieces. These stamps reflect the beauty and asymmetry of nature and I'm so excited to integrate them into the design of a piece! I ultimately want to start creating stamps with my own sketches, but until then I will graciously incorporate these lovely reflections of nature's imperfect, but brilliant art. Here's one of the stamp designs. Love. It.
