The subjective experience of "beauty" often involves the interpretation of some entity as being in balance and harmony with nature, which may lead to feelings of attraction and emotional well-being. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" is a common phrase that expresses this concept.

In its most profound sense, beauty may engender a salient experience of positive reflection about the meaning of one's own existence. An "object of beauty" is anything that reveals or resonates with personal meaning.

Giles Kent

Someone that I think has some aesthetic and uncomplicated way of working with natural materials.

" indulgence in purity of form for forms sake; yet it is a purity informed by the personality of the material and his experience of the natural landscape..."

Next development...

I am now working on one form in both bronze and ceramics. I have no idea where it has come from, but I feel that it is very 'earth-like', as though it has been born from something of the fundamentals of the earth.
I like their irregular form and the composition of three of them together.

In the ceramic form I am making a simple cast which will enable me to reproduce them and experiment with different finishes in the ceramic process.

Ceramic egg...

An update image of the in ceramics. Now to be glazed...the next learning process begins.

The cast wasn't exactly perfect so there were a lot of irregularities and problems with forming the egg into one form. Using lots of vinegar and under some questioning eyes, I managed to produce my first complete sculpture in ceramics.
