More Fun with Size...

I have used the size extremes theme in a lot of different areas in our home. There is a gigantic teacup perched on top of a storage unit in the bathroom. It adds a touch of humor and nailed the color theme - not hard to do with all white appliances!

My first introduction to the impact of size and common objects was definitely through the work of sculptor Claes Oldenburg.

Clothes Pin, Philadelphia, PA near City Hall

Spoonbridge and Cherry • Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN

His work, his sense of design, and his compositions always make me smile.  I make a point of checking them out when we travel. It is a different experience to stand next to a huge clothes pin.
