Now that I’m surrounded by nature again, I probably won’t be feeling the need to squirrel away every single rock or seashell or twig that catches my eye. But even though now I can just walk out the back door and look at all the rocks I want, there’s something nice about arranging your found treasure on a shelf or windowsill for future enjoyment.
Artist/Ceramicist Gerald Arrington of Arrington Design is similarily inspired by the beauty of river rocks and has developed a technique for creating one-of-a-kind “stoneware” ceramics. The teapot above (yes, that’s a ceramic teapot) is an example of how his work forces the viewer to take a closer look at the true nature of things that surround them.
What do you think about art that mimics nature?
