Luminaries share "Nine Inspirations" in life and in work.
Nine Inspirations of Thalen & Thalen
1. A man making giant soap bubbles in Central Park (NY) inspired us to create vessels and objects with flowing organic shapes.
These fast-moving, three dimensional shapes inspire us to catch the movement in a still object; when a piece is seen from all sides, it gives a similar impression of this movement...caught in silver.
2. Henry Moore's sculptures within a wide open landscape. Henry Moore’s sculptures integrate with the landscape, and become part of it.
Nine Inspirations of Artist Amy Kirchner
“Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit”
- E. E. Cummings
Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
This was the first art museum I visited regularly. It was also the first time I ever viewed Mark Rothko’s work in person. I have always felt deep balance in the presence of Yellow Band.
Wind. It inspires us, either gently or by force, to let go. Creating this type of movement is essential in my work.
Nine Inspirations of Designer Fabiana Milazzo
1 – Waterfall House: It’s the name that I call the lands that I own in the country area of my hometown in Brazil. It’s my refuge and a place where I can find peace. Where I renew myself, surrounded by the nature’s energy.
2 – Traveling: I can’t name just one inspiring place that I’ve been to, traveling is one of my biggest passions and everywhere I go I learn something different. I like to discover new venues and also connect myself with different cultures.
3 – Georges Pompidou Center: It was the first museum of modern art that I’ve visited in my life, I was 18 years old and it changed my life. It made look to life with a different perspective, and every time that I return the experience is never the same.
Nine Inspirations of ArtistJason Sauve
1. Quote: “That which does not kill us, makes us grow stronger.”
This quote first came to my attention in my late teenage years after re-discovering the classic movie Conan. A now classic film from 1980. It resonated with me because at a time of growing up and with personal challenges it helped to serve me and remind that strength comes from your outer and inner self. It was a source of motivation for never giving up and overcoming obstacles. You only fail if you don’t get back up. You have to keep fighting for your dreams and goals. You can manifest you desires.
