I Feel Blue

Never has a single color been more closely associated with a particular artist than an indigo hue known as Yves Klein Blue...and deservedly so, given the fact that it was he who basically invented the process in which to achieve it (along with some rather clever chemists). His ability to capture the vibrancy of a perfect blue powdered pigment and the way he incorporated it into a variety of mediums gave him such notoriety within the art world that his influence must have been at play with the creation of the four West German 'Fat Lava' ceramic pieces you see above.
