QUOTE OF THE DAY= Harry Bertoia

Sculptures by Harry Bertoia

Harry Bertoia was both visual artist and creator of modern furniture. In thinking a lot about line recently, I've come to admire the simplicity and linear qualities in his sculptures. Bertoia's quote below- simple and to the point, like his work- may be applied to fine art as well as design, so I'm including it here. Suffice it to say that almost every artist can surely relate:

"The urge for good design is the same as the urge to go on living."
- Harry Bertoia
