An excerpt from the Barnstable Patriot newspaper:
To be Shaken, Not Stirred
Gorgeous custom globes by Camryn Forrest Designs depict an intriguing form of Steampunk art – a kind of alternate reality that mixes modern ideas and technology with inventions from the Victorian age. These often contain repurposed or “found” items such as silver bolts, copper or bronze gears or old military buttons, with metallic gold and silver specks replacing the snow. One amazing globe/sculpture pays tribute to H.G. Wells; others contain hot air balloons or clockwork-y mechanisms.
STEAMED! Steampunk Snowglobes by Maeve Alpin
One of the most fascinating sites, Dark Roasted Blend, linked to us a while back:
If It’s Hip, It’s Here
I heard from many readers of this site, who discovered my artwork through “If it’s hip, it’s here …” Very fun!
Note: You called my steampunk snowglobes “badass” and I thought it was great!

Thanks for the feature article and all the great photos!
Clockwork Alchemy (www.clockworkalchemy.com) part of Fanime (www.fanimecon.com)
Thanks to all the jury members who agreed that snow globes were art, and invited me into the Clockwork Alchemy show. Special shout-out to Sandra Forrer, who ran the artists bazaar and was absolutely incredible about communicating with all of us. Bravo!

Many thanks for including Camryn Forrest Designs in your Saturday Steam section. As a fan of Epbot, it was a huge thrill to see my work on your site! Double thanks for the unrelated “how to create a patina” tutorial that I found useful for a particular project. Your timing was impeccable.
I’m just awed that you found my globes! Hope I can get out to a Tampa-area con in the future.
