I have been very busy in my studio as I continue to explore my “Ammonite Assemblage” series with several new works.
There is an amazing amount of variety in the textures and shapes contained within the chambers of these fossils. Their spiral shell is a perfect design element; often referred to as the "Golden Mean" or Fibonacci curve. Examples can be found in nature and echoed in all of my artworks.
They are relatives of the nautilus as well as my favorite the octopus. They existed 240-65 million years ago and were so very numerous but departed along with the dinosaurs.
