0704 reflection

What's Ikea's gift to the world? Multiplication, dozens of items and dozens of each, design that's usually functional or thought-about (with occasional flashes of what-the?).

This pulled my camera out almost instantly. It's magic, amid the repetition (and I'm not knocking repetition, you can tell from other photos I've taken that I like it, let alone being a quilter).

Just look. Identical glass jars with identical silvery tops, lined up on shelves - and with the slight shifts in the fall of light on each, they're casting reflections as individual as snowflakes on the wall. Wonderful swirly circles, no two the same.
