Gravity: Attractive Forces on Etsy

Handpicked on Etsy
Gravity is the attraction between objects with mass, in which the larger object pulls all smaller objects unto itself. Gravity is what keeps us attached to our planet, drawn into the earth's center, grounded. Essential to the order of the universe, we take it for granted until an artist reminds of its mesmerizing power or intrigues us with attempts to defy it. In today's selections, these Etsy artists consciously considered gravity in their creative process. Each of the pieces successfully depicts a message about gravity: The way it draws all objects and particles unto the center of itself, the way all matter and substances fall downward to the earth's center, the way living beings enjoy a moment of defiance by going airborne, or the way it controls planetary orbits.
Prices range from $15.00 to $1200.00. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. From top left to bottom right, today's featured artisans include: Jewelkrug, Ggestalt, ProgressGallery, whitemetal, 2trickpony, hopeimages, IslaOsborne, samphoto
