Renegade Airship

Arrrr, it’s the pirate’s life for me!

When one is in the mood to be dastardly, not just any ship will do. The Renegade is just that: a lone wolf gone off to seek fortune and adventure where it might be found.

 

When shaken, the ship disappears into the clouds. Renegade Airship snow globe, Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado

Earthbound

Sometimes you hear a familiar word which strikes you in an unfamiliar way. Today’s word is “Earthbound.”

We are bound to the earth by gravity, by necessity, by our history as humans. So far, somewhere between 500 and 600 individual people from nearly 40 countries have escaped the earth for a small period of time. Spaceships to the stars. Shuttles and space stations, visits to the moon.

But the rest of us are earthbound. We are bound to the earth and the earth is bound to us.

We are held to the earth, and yet we hold the earth’s future in our hands.

Earthbound.

Gear Up

But … what does it do?

A simple machine, or a curious invention, with interlocking gears as the focal point. This tiny sculpture features an assortment of hardware including gears, propellers, chain, coils and assorted devices, bathed in a glittering shower of coppery metallic dust when the globe is shaken.Β  Is it finished, or a work in progress? The mysterious purpose is unknown.
