That time your best friend goes on a road trip to Sedona, Arizona and takes along her favorite Primitive Modernism pieces to shoot. Oh, did I forget to mention that said best friend happens to be an extremely talented photographer?
I’m obsessed with the laid back south western vibe right now, but who isn’t these days? If you’re on Instagram, it is a sea of inspiriational cactus photos… and as I peruse Pinterest, I ooh & aah at the beautiful vast desert oases near and far. I find myself daydreaming about the native peoples of these parts and all of the wonderful treasures and handicrafts that they created long ago and hopefully are still creating today. Which leads to me sketching… I wanted to create an arrowhead ring that had a modern twist on the traditional arrowhead shape. With a more simplistic triangle silhouette, I hand sculpted the piece giving it a subtle chiseled texture, then cast it in metal. The use of an antiqued patina helps accentuate the organic surface texture. Shop the Arrowhead Ring below:
Sometimes it feels like an endless summer here in Los Angeles. 80 degree nights, cloudless skies, birds chirping, bees pollinating – and a breeze is like a gift from above. So we put on a sundress and a hat and pick flowers and lounge in the shade…
The Primitive ModernismZiggurat Cuff Bracelet was inspired by the step pyramids of ancient civilizations. The great pyramids of Egypt and the pyramids of the pre-Aztec city of Teotihuacan, Mexico. The shapes and textures of these grand structures as well as the rituals at these ceremonial sites are awe-inspiring.
This woman is so fantastic! What a spirit – I want to be like her at 90. I randomly came across this video and I’m so glad that I pressed play – it made my day! Meet 90 year old Ilona Royce Smithkin. She is more lively than most 20 year olds, she paints, she sings, and wears lashes made of her own hair. Confused about this posts’ title? Watch the video
Bonus: I checked out the source of the video, Advanced Style, and love what this guy is doing: “My name is Ari Seth Cohen. I roam the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.” Check out his blog at: www.advancedstyle.blogspot.com
