This month’s inspiration for the Art Bead Scene Challenge is a mesmerising piece by German artist, Kirt Schwitters. Entitled ‘Revolving’, it is a fragmented compilation of cord, hoops, wire mesh and other objects which are tacked to the painted canvas. It is said to reflect a post-war society, shattered by World War I.
I was immediately drawn to the circular pattern and the colour palette, which is very soothing.
My design for this challenge, is a pair of earrings which use handmade teal coloured ceramic beads made by Natalie Fletcher of Peruzi. I have matched these with embossed brass rectangles with a circular pattern and a ‘sploshy’ (is that a word?) colour of blues and greens.
