Club Creative Studio is no doubt in love with creating art items using bright and vivid color combinations. However, this does not mean that anything created in neutrals of black and white are tossed to the side. NOOOOO, far from that idea. I also create using black and white in polymer clay and glass.
I love creating in black and white because of the contrast it lends us visually. Black happens to be my “favorite color” so, to combine black with any other color is always aesthetically pleasing to me. I use black to define and separate areas. The outlines become just as important that the other elements in my clay bead designs.
The stark contrast when using black and white draw our eyes into focus of the division of shape and that seems to attract and keep our attention.
I am blogging about black and white today because it is “Cow Appreciation Day” today. Being from the midwest, cows are pretty important. I will celebrate them today by creating more black and white beads to match the common milk cow, and the abilities of black and white in art to stand out from the ordinary. Do you like black and white contrast colors together? What do you like about black and white accessories?
The next time you see someone wearing items that are designed in black and white, try to determine why you are drawn to that combination. They are striking for sure.
