new york city based artist and designer lula aldunate has photographed a hand-crafted a series, comprised of vibrantly colored and intricately pattered mandalas. the spiritual spirals are a ritual symbol in hinduism and buddhism, which represent the universe. here, aldunate has recreated the circular motif from ornately decorated tableware, deftly intermingling various colors, botanical prints, plate size and trim. gold leaf overlaps neon pinks perfectly, both unifying and juxtaposing the compositions. the artist is a lover of flea markets, quirky details, colors and prints; thus, the her work always includes a vintage piece, as illustrated in the collection of antique arrangements.
