I can’t really tell if Mike Rugnetta likes snow globes or not. But he made a video all about them. (He’s part of the Idea Channel at PBS Digital Studios.)
You decide for yourself.
“Fate loves the fearless.”
I wish I could remember who said it and in what context, but I’ve lost the source.
The phrase stayed with me, reminding of some other words to live by, including “You miss every shot you don’t take, ” attributed to Wayne Gretsky.
Why a turtle? I don’t know: Perhaps the gentle sea turtle always appears to be flying and I took it one step farther, with a couple taking a leap of faith together, fearless and bold, holding on for the exciting ride ahead.
“Fate Loves the Fearless.” Ah, yes it does.
“Fate Loves the Fearless” custom snow globe with flying turtle and tiny human couple along for the ride. When shaken, the liquid sky fills with shimmering glitter of daybreak.

Adding and subtracting, combining and reducing, twisting and turning … Yep, art’s like that. We like M.C. Escher and his drawings of fantastic stairways where one climbs endlessly.
We like ice storms.
And we like penguins.
So what if you took penguins+icestorm+escher staircase and made … Perpetual Penguins.
Hey, nobody’s going to stop us, right?
The staircase is made of clear acrylic, with painstaking effort to cut each tiny stair to the perfect size and shape. When shaken, the globe bursts with the light of the Aurora Borealis reflected in the shimmering, dancing snow. And the penguins keep marching: up, down, sideways in the endless twilight. Perpetual penguins.
