Journey to the Stars

Who hasn’t wished for the courage and opportunity to take the first wild step into the unknown?

“Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.”
– Matsuo Basho

 

 

 

 

“Journey to the Stars” one of a kind snow/sparkle globe with tiny mixed media zeppelin and sailing ship below. When shaken, the mystic fog and shimmering clouds envelop the ship in a cloak of near invisibility until the light finds it, again.

Always …

Sometimes you just know: Always.

Wish Upon a Star

When you wish upon a star,

makes no difference who you are,

anything your heart desires,

will come to you.

Hold Your Horses!

You hear a common phrase a thousand times, then one day you hear it anew: Hold Your Horses!

Of course it harks back to a day when people used horses daily, when “hold your horses” probably meant “stop, wait a minute, think this through” or some variation. Hang on there, pardner, you’re not ready to hit the road.

But from another perspective, it might mean something else altogether. Patience, my friend, all in good time. Don’t let your horses take off before you’re ready. And don’t let them go without you.

“Hold Your Horses” – one of a kind custom snow globe by Camryn Forrest Designs. Miniature metal-tone man holding tiny horses from floating away, when shaken, the liquid fills with shimmer dust and black and white confetti horses. The ones that got away, apparently.

Untangling “The Tangle”

We’re excited to have one of our liquid globes featured in the upcoming independent movie, “The Tangle” by writer/director/actor Christopher Soren Kelly.

And while we are being patient for the movie release, and getting ready for the next three art festivals on our calendar, here’s an interview about Kelly’s body of work which includes more information on “The Tangle.”  Enjoy!
