Chill ….

Remember that feeling, so peaceful, that you imagine your thoughts are gently carried on a cool breeze?

CHILL snow globe, Camryn Forrest Designs, 2015
Let the world swirl around you, while you sit back and … chill.

 

Chill: original hand sculpted clay head, with a headdress of clear and iridescent cubed beads to suggest ice. Wood base painted with layers of metallic paint to create a faux patina with touches of “frost.” When shaken, the globe’s liquid fills with shimmering flecks of iridescent particles, swirling like an ice storm, while the peaceful face remains … chill.  All designs and images copyright (c) 2015 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA

Scissorhands sparkle globe

Ah, Scissorhands, the sound of one hand slicing.

A sculpted clay hand in bronze tones wears gold-toned scissors at the ready. When shaken the snow globe explodes with flecks of silvery slivers, and an echo of shimmering iridescent gold dust settles slowly, as though this scissored hand has the ability to slice the atmosphere itself.

Men At Work

Machines both fascinate and frighten me. Sometimes their impact seems to overwhelm the presence of the very people who created them.
This sparkle snow globe, Men at Work, illustrates that feeling. Just who is in charge, anyway? what are we trying to accomplish?

When shaken, the scene is bathed in shimmering gold dust … until the dust settles, and the work begins again.

I Climb the Walrus (Koo Koo Ka Choo)

Don’t ask me to explain it, if you haven’t heard of “Alternative Lyric Syndrome” … well, that’s because I just made it up.

You hear a song you’ve heard before and Ba-Zing, you hear it differently this time.

Which is why my tired brain suggested that John was really saying “I climb the walrus.”  This really was  a delightful image to contemplate.

Doesn’t it look like fun?

Grow Old With Me (sparkle water globe)

A wisp of a lyric, written on the wind, “Grow old with me, the best is yet to be.

– John Lennon and Robert Browning had the same idea.

 

Along those simple lines, a snow globe holds a couple of indeterminate age, holding each other as the world swirls round them.

Shake the globe and the liquid fills with glittering sparkles of gold; each tiny star a memory, each memory a brick in the life that’s built together.
