Antoni Gaudi- challenge
I had never heard of this man before. However, over in FSOJ 2009 one of the themed challenges is his work. So, I googled him. He is/was (?) an architect. I looked at only a few of his buildings and feel immediately in love with them! They have this carved bone, fairytale, old world, organic look to them. I know that is a lot to heap together, but that is what it reminds me of. The pictures that I saw remind me of vampire tales but as if they were in day light. Strange- maybe I'm just obsessed with them from playing Vampire Wars on Facebook (it's a sickness LOL).
I can't wait to get started on a jewelry piece or two that is inspired by his work! I'm going to have to go ahead and add Antoni Gaudi to my every growing research for fun list!
