351 – Black and Red Mandala

Black and Red by Tamera Greiter

I love this piece! Created by local metalworks artist, Tamera Greiter, this piece vibrates with it’s strength, beauty and simplicity. I love how two of the mandalas are implied. In my mind’s eye I can see the rest of the circles. And then the red “mandala” pulls it all together bringing balance to a piece that would be lost with out. Even in the base, she incorporates two open “mandalas.”

About her art she states:

My inspiration comes from the challenge of combining the cast off and scrap of today’s society into functional, eye pleasing work that enhances everyday life. The materials I use consist of recycled industrial and automotive steel. My metal work is a juxtaposition of the old, traditional blacksmith forging, combined with old school welding and cutting torches.

If you happen to be in the Corvallis area between now and December 28, you can see/buy her beautiful art in person at the annual Teal Co-op Gallery. She also participates in the annual Philomath Open Studios event in late October.

Tamera’s magnificent piece reminds us to bring all aspects of our lives into balance…with strength, beauty and simplicity.
