Time & Details

I have been traveling; England, Ireland, Scotland and Orkney. Everywhere I looked there was a sense of history. Not the kind that I create with my pieces but a real sense of history. Above, on the left, the Ring of Brogdar in Orkney. A ring of stones constructed before the Great Pyramids, more the 5,000 years ago.


Not only is there a much longer sense of history but I saw such beautiful ornamentation. It took my breath away. On the right, a detail from a mirror at the Blair Castle in Pitlochry, Scotland. Not an inch of space was without such workmanship.


I will never match the history or the details but I can be inspired by them.
