Kitchen geometry

There is a wealth of symbolic meaning attached to the circle. Enclosing and nurturing. Femininity. The world we travel. Eternity. Ouroboros, the serpent biting its own tail, found in a number of different cultures and time periods. In Norse mythology, the World Serpent Jörmundgandr lies in the sea surrounding the world and bites his own tail. The world as we know it ends when he lets go.

Inspired by Mortal Muses and Tracey Clark’s Picture classes, I’ve been looking through my lens for beauty in a room where I enjoy spending a lot of time, namely the kitchen. What I’ve found, more than anything else, are circles. That seems altogether fitting, in the room where I spend time creating sustenance for my family and myself.
