"Everything is connected to a sphere..."

"On the macro level, the cosmic level, the whole universe is like a sphere.

The planets are spheres, ya know.  Atoms are spheres.

…It's probably the most natural form that we have. Things of wonder and beauty."

Bernard Hosey, artist

My good friend Kathy recently shared a link to a video about Bernard Hosey, a sculptor who creates spheres. This short video is beautifully done and well worth your time. I can relate!

The artist's website provides a biography, galleries of works, exhibitions, links, blog and contact information.

From Mr. Hosey's web gallery
"The 8-foot steel spheres are the beginning of a new dimension.
Despite the heavy weight of these steel spheres they look buoyant."

Cast on stitching makes an adorable, dimensional flower

Week 32 in Sharon's TAST (Take a stitch Tuesday) was the cast on stitch. If you have ever started a knitting project, this stitch will be a snap for you to pick up. It makes an adorable flower!
