Old form in a modern way.
Todays spiral is a silver broche I once saw. The spiral holds a ruby in the center and is ment for threading directly onto a knitted jacket or top. Isn't it a simple yet beautiful design. It's made by a Norwegian silversmith and I can't remember her name.
This spiral-form were much used in clocks and doorlocks, but new designs has overtaken. The broch shows a new way of using an old form, which I really like.
There is something calming with this spiral form, even and round over and over again.
There has been questions on what I will do with all these small paintings. First of all I learn from making them and that's good enough for me. I will probably frame some of them and use them in some way or other.
Tomorrow I'll make another one.
