What is it about airships, you ask? I have no easy answer. I like the way they look, the adventures they imply, the endless possibilities. And they seem somehow, green, you know? They just putter along with mostly windpower (that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.)
TotusMel was kind enough to feature one of my floating snow globes on her recent blog showing a collection of airships. (Never say “blimp,” it hurts their feelings.) http://totusmelswunderkammer.blogspot.com/2013/05/dirigible.html
It got me thinking: just how many airship/dirigible/zeppelin snow globes HAVE I made? I did a quick inventory from the past few months and it appears if you include hot air balloons, flying saucers, rockets and dirigible as “airships” … well, I’ve done quite a few.
Let’s see …
And then there’s this one, nearly finished.
I call it “Flight of the Warrior Rhino.” Coming soon to a fantasy near you.
Don’t ask. Sometimes these sculptures have a mind of their own.
