Crystal | Quartz | Shard | Gem Stone | Marble | Mineral

The essence of my new brief is really coming alive. Now that my project is starting to develop a little further, I have used those initial inspiration points (shown in my previous blog post!) to hone in on some more focused, in-depth research. The theme that continued to fascinate me was the idea of curious and bizarre formations and colours in nature such as crystals, clouds, bubbles and light refraction. I started looking at different types of quartz, geodes and gems and discovered hundreds of different colours and forms. I love the unusual and forever changing shapes of each individual, along side the more structured geometric facets and angles of the shards . I love the colours and the varying surface qualities from smooth and shiny agate to glittering jagged crystallisation. I also love the translucency; the cloudiness that’s concealed almost appears to swirl like marble.

Today I began sourcing interesting objects to begin to photograph and draw from such as an amethyst crystal, rose quartz and some cut style crystals. I also had a fun afternoon using a really colourful bath bomb and watching how the colours swirled and created marble like shapes.

All the photography has been taken and edited by me. Please enquire if you would like to know any more information or use any of my images. and thank you to LUSH for the bath bomb!
