Singing Color

Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. - Picasso

This wasn't my most productive week as far as glass goes. I had a couple of freelance graphic design projects that I focused on instead. But I did make one small batch of pendants. I was basically experimenting with color and shape. I love putting colors together to see if they sing. With glass it can be especially fun, because of the way glasses react to each other. I was really pleased with the white petals and lime green center. I also love using the black base for these because the colors just snap out visually.

  1. You're using some of my favorite colors:) I love orange lately, and it can surely sing with that light aqua-y turquoise...and I love the turquoise with that lovely light green! I've been buying some decor items and dishware in those colors over the last year or so, and clothing too, lol. Your flowers are just beauty-ful!

  2. Thank you. Like you, I do love those bright colors together. They just make me feel joyful when I look at them.
