Throughout my career I have been influenced by Japanese pattern design. The ebb and flow of their motifs mimic nature but don't replicate it. Many of these motifs follow a constellation pattern.
Constellations of stars and the constellation of arranged patterns decorate the surfaces of pieces in my jewelry collection. Pieces such as the Galaxy, Celestial Ball, and Milky Way cluster stones to look like tiny stars. In addition, traces of raised dots and holes are used to imitate the constellations of pattern found in nature.
This week on Instagram we will be referencing some of my favorite examples of asymmetry, balance and decorative pattern through ikebana, textiles, jewelry, art etc.
