I love crystals and not in a New Age sort of way, I appreciate the beauty that emerges from a few simple laws of physics to create pleasing and sometimes exotic forms. An excellent example is Daniel MacDonald’s works of purified salt.
nspired by a childhood trip to Yellowstone National Park, Daniel MacDonald invented a way to create these orb-like sculptures that he calls shio, which happens to be the Japanese word for salt. The orbs are created in a studio where purified salt is poured over forms made by MacDonald. The salt water flows and slowly builds up over time and the crystals begin to form.
