weekly photo challenge : curves

Here’s my response to the daily post weekly photo challenge. Several images came to mind immediately so I thought I’d post right away. I’m overwhelmed with the posts I want to do about my trip last week to San Antonio, Texas for the Surface Design Association Conference. I’m working on several smaller posts to try to capture some of the highlights. But back to the challenge…

elephant decorationThis is a detail of the painted design on a small elephant which stands outside the Witte Museum.

gate detailThis is part of a metal gate at the McNay Museum. Much of the museum is housed in a beautiful old home which belonged to the estate of Marion Koogler McNay. There is an artistic influence in many of the architectural details. It’s well worth a visit.

CIA light fixture light detailThese are my favorite curves – found on a light fixture that hangs outside the entrance to the C.I.A. (not that C.I.A. – the Culinary Institute of America). Of course they would have a fixture made of non-stick frying pans! This is located in the old Pearl Brewery complex, which has been developed into retail and residential space. Check out their website, which is loaded with San Antonio history.

  16. I’m especially struck by how the first and second images seem almost to mirror one another. Don’t know whether that was intentional – but it’s very effective!!! Can’t wait to read about more design!!!

  20. Terri, the wrought iron brings to mind the artistry of metalworker Samuel Yellin. His work is brilliant. If you’re not familiar with him, I urge you to check him out: http://www.samuelyellin.com/

    I love the inspired use of those frying pans!
