simple things...

My partner, Jerzy (he's the gardener in the family), brought in a beautiful rose this morning. So fragile and delicately fragrant. He put it in one of our favourite glass vases. I made this vase many years ago at a glass-blowing workshop and it is very clunky and not at all a finely-crafted object, but I love the blobs of glass stuck to the sides. Somehow, it's me! I decided to photograph it for the blog so I took it out onto the porch where I discovered the wonderful way the light passed through these blobs. Below are the photographs, capturing the sensuous glass and its interplay with the light. Simple things are so inspiring!

Beautiful photo's Kate. I too love the interplay between the light & shadow, shape & form.
