A Zeppelin Built for Two

Daisy, Daisy, tell me your answer true,
I’m half crazy, all for the love of you.

It won’t be a stylish marriage,
I can’t afford a carriage.
But you’ll look sweet
Upon the seat,
of a Zeppelin Built for Two.

“A Zeppelin Built for Two” – one of a kind snow globe (sparkle globe) with a couple riding a bicycle built for two, underneath a stately airship in the sky. Sculpture: acrylic, wire, leather, metal and glass inside a glass globe. When shaken, the liquid-filled globe shimmers with mystic fog. Handpainted wooden base with metal embellishments.

Just a Girl and her Brontosaurus

There is no hidden meaning here, no subterfuge, no play on words.

Just a girl.

And her Brontosaurus.

Life is Just a Blimp of Cherries

The Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, and we are happy to be part of it. Our first big art show, ever, was Cherry Creek, when we were named an “emerging artist” (as a two-person collaboration) and received assistance, advice and even the loan of a tent the first year. Such an amazing help!

To thank Cherry Creek for their support, and pay it forward, we created a special sparkle globe for this year’s auction. Proceeds from the auction of this item, and many other beautiful donated artworks, will support arts education programs in Colorado. Win/win!

Bidding has started – enjoy!

Another Door Opens

The inspiration was the word “threshold.” The deliberate act of crossing from one place into another. A door, a doorway, a beginning.

But brick by brick, it took on deeper symbolism. Another door opens … into what?

We open the doors, we peek out, we step through. But until that moment, we never really know what’s out there.

Teal Me Again

While making snow globes, one often has to accept that not everything is possible.
On the other hand, sometimes the unexpected happens.
Many shimmering glitters and dusts do NOT behave in liquid. They disappear. They fade. They leach color into the liquid.
But once in a while … oh! a sparkle holds it own and keeps every promise it makes.
“Teal Me Again” is a tribute to the color that will not quit.
It dances, it prances, it whistles a tune: It does not tint the liquid. It does not become invisible. It simply makes one smile.
Again and again.
Teal Me.
Again.
