La Mer: C’est Magnifique

Ship to Shore

Ship to Shore

We all came from the sea.  It is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.”  John F. Kennedy

Every color and nuance of the ocean informs my design.  It is an expression of every emotion, tumultuous and violent, serene and radiant, and every part bright and dark, salty and sweet, gritty and smooth as glass that exists in me and that I ever want to be.  It is the perfect expression of life, with all it’s amazing dimensions.  I am drawn to the ocean wherever I go.  I want to be near it, in it, on it, feel its buoyancy and heaviness, its power, its gentle touch.  It’s the fullest expression of a single non-human thing that I know.  I endeavor to pour a little of that complexity sass into my design.

I’m on a seaside sourcing expedition for a spark of inspiration. Bodega
