In our home, it is even more easy to miss the beauty. In December, I found a local artist named Kevin Loughran who makes the most wonderful, functional, pieces of art for a home. He is a gentle spirit who really does make the world a more beautiful place. In his words
In nonferrous metals I build long term solutions for living graciously in a plastic world. I have been forming, etching and patinating metals into art for the past 25 years. I like to take the mundane in everyday objects and pay respect to their marvelous functions. That is why I presently work in switch plates, doorbells, and dimmers; to honor the beauty of the small things in our lives.
I feel very good about the quality and sensibility of my work as an expression of my obsession to create beauty.
We're slowly replacing switch plates in our home with his work... as reminder of the beauty that is all around us if we only look.
This one is by our entryway
Thanks Kevin for bringing a little more beauty into our daily lives!
