i’m jealous of elsa mora

Whoa. I want an entire table top covered in these gorgeous little ceramic pieces by Cuban, now LA based, artist Elsa Mora. She is best known for her paper-cutting work {which is amazing}, but I absolutely fell in love with these strange, delicate bits and pieces of porcelain. They feel very medical to me… in a totally organic, nature-inspired, biology class kind of way!

ps. those feet! i love those feet!

    I can see the connexion between her paper work and this one, both are complex and full of tiny little details that create an intimate bond between the art and the viewer, but I definitely like these ceramic pieces more…
    No wonder why you fell in love with them! They are adorable.

    There is a delicate feminine quality which harks to Victorian oceanic for me. I totally get why you are jealous of this artist with her intimate detail!

    She can do anything and she seems like the nicest person in the world. Every time I read her blog I feel better no matter how bad I felt.

    Isn’t she amazing! What can’t she do is the question? *She inspires me*

    It seems to me that a recovery rating would be a much more obvious and profitable business for FICO than either morality ratings or the consumer products that they’re pushing on their myFICO website. And would make the company much less disliked among consumer advocates, too. But maybe they don’t have the data necessary to put a recovery rating together.In the yesterday, Representative Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) took issue with me saying that infrastructure investment is an extremely expensive way of creating jobs and “costs a good $200,000 per job”. Just as well I didn’t use the $1 million figure , which I stand by, and which was fact-checked by the Atlantic!
