Glossy

I watched the 1998 sci-fi thriller The Sphere this week.  The movie had me thinking about the quote, "perfection is a powerful statement" regarding the mysterious and perfectly designed gold sphere.  It simply explains why I am attracted to symmetrical and geometric designs.  Straight lines, angles, and a smooth polished finish seem basic in theory but there is little room for error.  Abstract and experimental design tend to be more forgiving, which, is why I find minimal yet modern design to be just as challenging.  

The overall shape of assorted stainless steel spheres is organic but the surface and materials add a modern touch.
