Art inspired by nature and science is my favorite thing ever. Several years ago I discovered a piece by Elsa Mora (see below) that I fell madly in love with. It's like a nature collection, like a handful of beautiful things someone with a keen eye collected in the woods. Or it could be tiny objects seen under a microscope, or weird organisms found in a tide pool. I never found anything else like her ceramic objects until the other day, and then somehow ended up encountering a cascade of other artists creating nature-inspired work, by some conspiring of the universe. All of these are so, so beautiful, they make me drool a little.
