Button Wednesday : Bluffs

It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Button Wednesday is about "Bluffs". Bluffs is made by artist Tara Donovan. Tara is an artist from New York and her works feature found objects like buttons, shattered glass, fishing line, drinking straws, etc. She takes very simple objects and transforms them into something much more beautiful and complex. Bluffs is a sculpture piece completely made of simple buttons. Since the buttons are white, cream, and clear, it gives a very icy feel, like you have just stumbled upon a winter castle. Or it might be some spiraling coral, or crystals that have grown from the floor of a cave, or a mountain range carved into peaks. When light shines through it, it turns a dusky pink/mauve color. The varying densities within the piece make for an infinite scale of saturation of this color, which changes subtly with point of view. Here a lot of pictures to show you this wonderful art piece.

Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here in the comments so that everybody can enjoy it !!
