SIA: Cherry blossom dish

It’s time for another Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge! This week, Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey has chosen this week’s inspiration artwork.

The inspiration artwork:

Salazar chose a Japanese “Nabeshima” dish from the Met’s public domain collection. The plate was made during the date range of 1690–1720s, and the design is a rare one.

"Large Dish with Cherry Blossoms," The Met, is in the public domain

“Large Dish with Cherry Blossoms,” The Met, is in the public domain

As we’ve had a few paintings as inspiration lately, this makes a fun change of pace. And as Salazar put it, “the design is both bold and delicate, and the colors are spring-appropriate.” I particularly like the cross-hatching graphic design mixed with the floral design.

How to participate in SIA?

Everyone is welcome to participate — bloggers, non-bloggers, all genders, all ages, even pets! Just send a pic of an outfit — selfies and flat lays are also welcome — inspired by this week’s SIA artwork to this week’s curator, Salazar, at by next Tuesday, May 8th. Salazar will then post the SIA round-up on her blog, 14 Shades of Grey, on Wednesday, May 9th.

Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with! 😀
