We’ve gone pretty far into sweetness and fantasy this week. Time to swing back to the organic world, to science and the unseen richness and beauty of the sea as illustrated by a Seattle artist. Take a look at Carolyn Zick’s polymer clay radiolaria.

Radiolaria are microscopic plankton, single cell organisms whose delicate variations and beautiful forms Zick was compelled to draw and recreate. Her show, Pale Sun, displayed these and other works created while she was an artist in residence in Listagilio Center in Akureyri, Iceland.

Thanks to Susan Rose who linked us to this walk on the wild side.
