Blue Glass

Blue Glass

This glass bottle intrigued me. It sat unassuming in my in-law’s backyard. I actually overlooked it several times while taking pictures until my wife pointed it out to me.

It’s mysteriously zen-like in its paradox. It’s both smooth and sharp; rounded and slicing, transparent and reflective. And its balanced contradictions are sustained by its color. From what I’ve read, blue is calming, peaceful, tranquil and can actually slow one’s pulse. It represents harmony, unity and stability.

It makes me wonder what other trinkets of concealed beauty I’ve missed through my hurried days.

  1. It is so pretty, with it’s sea blue color and it’s curving lines, but I think it was made to be an insulator on a power line where only the birds would usually look. I like the way that you have isolated it from the outdoorsy background and put it on black. Very stark contrast.
