COLOR INSPIRATION: BLUE
blue with pizza still life
How blue is the sky? Horace Bénédict de Saussure's CYANOMETER, 1789. For his weather observations, to measure "blueness" he used suspensions of Prussian blue, dying paper squares every shade of blue he could distinguish between white and black. These were assembled into a numbered colour circle that could be held up to the zenith at a standard distance from the eye - the matching square established the degree of blue. (The color of the atmosphere indicates particles and water vapour in the air.)

Never intented to be viewed as a thing of beauty they just are amazingly beautiful, patched and sewn piece-by-piece, handed down from generation to generation they became objects of desire because of their beauty , history and soul.
