Natures Own

Author: Fine Ideas Furniture

It has occurred to me that square, cubic, straight, flat and angular design elements are pretty much man’s idea.  They seldom occur in nature and thank God for that.  A recent trip to Lake Powell was a revelation as to the endlessness of light, shape and texture.  An inimitable playground for the imagination.  “Hey that looks like a shark’s mouth” or “there’s a pith helmet 20 stories high” or “look a field of dinner rolls” or flowing cake batter or you name it you can probably see it.  And ya know what…this visual playground is made up almost entirely of sandstone, sand and water.  It is almost completely devoid of flora and fauna.  Those are completely different pallets.
