pHaver­field Col­lec­tion: Crys­talline Explorations

Crys­talline Explorations

These designs are all derived from my own hand­crafted crys­talline forms. I bathe them in polar­ized light and then begin my search for the most intrigu­ing com­po­si­tions I can find in each one.

With this process no two forms are ever the same, much like snowflakes. Although there are com­bi­na­tions of ingre­di­ents that can be used time and again, the form­ing of these hid­den jew­els remains com­pletely ran­dom. Vibrant color comes in to play as light passes through the prism struc­tures of each for­ma­tion. It’s kalei­do­scopic kismet and it reveals com­pletely unique images every time.

Because of this phe­nom­e­non none of the images can be nat­u­rally repli­cated, and the pos­si­bil­i­ties are infinite.

We believe appli­ca­tions for this new art form (besides gallery art) might include: many forms of sur­face design such as tex­tiles for fash­ion or home décor. Many would be excel­lent for ceramic or glass tiles, screen savers, coun­ter­tops, printed mate­ri­als, and more.
