I bought this cobalt blue pitcher after I had lunch with Barbara...
Rugs, tapestries, necklaces, dishes, towels..you name it, all was BLEU!
Barbara, when she first came to Paris to study the cello. She now judges competitions, writes, teaches and performs. AND she paints too!
As I left Barbara's studio I spotted this cobalt glass in an antique shop next door.
Did they know that Barbara loves blue too?
You can see more blue at the FIT show, Color in Fashion.
Blue has become the most popular color. "Blue bloods", "blue collar" workers, the "Blues"... Certainly blue is favored by Americans - blue jeans, blue blazers.
Michel Pastoureau, in this book covers the iconography, symbolism, sociology, the economic aspects of weaving, dyeing, and other aspects of the color bleu.
