If I had a list of favorite art pieces made in Seattle (note to self: make a list of favorite art pieces made in Seattle), Redefining Ballerism: Upping the Ante would totally be on it. And if I were going to buy myself a hunk of metal, I would seriously consider an Everchanging Ring. For now, I will settle myself with presenting you with this snapshot of local metal smith/stylist/sculptor Jana Brevick.

Closet you'd most like to raid Peggy Guggenheim's

Digital inspiration I spend my online time researching artists for specific projects, math, geometry, and architecture (i.e. Bucky Fuller). I'm currently tracking artist Susan Robb as she walks the Pacific Crest Trail. Also, Shannon Kelly's blog In Your Head and Soil Gallery.
