Layering to form an intricate unit


This is a mini clay sculpture I created a while back. Today it is mounted on a different backing, but I like the simplicity/complexity of the design isolated shown here.

What is interesting about this piece, to me, is the layering aspect of it. If you pay close attention, all the elements are quite simple if analyzed individually. However, as a collective unit, they appear to be far more intricate than they really are.

Also interesting to me is the color palette. There are only 4 main colors in this entire piece, which makes it look very unified: Purple, Teal (Turquoise), Blue and Dark Gold.

This piece is entitled "Rain Cloud". Please do not distribute or post without written permission.
