Greek Inspiration

Reed and I took a trip to the MET where we both felt inspired. We spent most of our time with the Greek and Roman ceramics and I focused my attention on the painted patterns and the shapes of these ancient yet very contemporary looking objects. I feel inspired to start exploring these throughout my own work. I am drawn to these patterns and textures and can certainly learn a lot from the shapes that were created for functionality and ceremony. Even though we've been to this section before. We were struck by how modern these looked and how they could easily be created today and never given a second thought.
