Eilisain aka Lisette in Gaelic

Welcome to my blog, where I document my process in making jewelry, muse on the influence of art and the joy of making beautiful objects.

Quote of the Day: Vasily Kandinsky

"Art in many ways resembles religion. Its development consists not of new discoveries that obliterate old truths and stamp them as false (as is apparently the case in science). Its development consists of moments of sudden illumination, resembling a flash of ligtning, of explosions that burst in the sky like fireworks....This illumination reveals with blinding clarity new perspectives, new truths that are in essence nothing other than the organic development, the continuing organic growth of earlier wisdom, which is not cancelled out by the latter, but remains living and productive as truth and as wisdom."

-Vasily Kandinsky, Reminiscences (1913)
