Where the Wind Blows

Where the Wind Blows sparkle globe Camryn Forrest Designs Denver Colorado

Haven’t you ever wanted to let someone else make all the decisions, or let something decide for you?

Climb into a balloon, rise into the sky, and let the wind carry you to places you can only imagine.

But you aren’t an innocent bystander taken for a ride. You decided this: to let go, to let the wind blow, to decide not to decide.

 

Where the Wind Blows” – miniature hot air balloon sculpture over tiny rooftops. When shaken, the liquid sky fills with mystic fog — iridescent sparkles and shimmering reflective dust.

Taming the Wild Rainbow

It takes a village to tame a wild rainbow, with persistence and dedication. Working slowly, so as not to frighten the tangle of colors, the group moves in unison, both distracting and disarming. Charmed and enchanted, the arching colors stretch and slide into place, tamed temporarily, ready again to burst into vibrant light.

Taming The Wild Rainbow, sculpture of miniature figures, prismatic beads and filament. When shaken, the liquid shimmers with reflective, prismatic dust, adding to the rainbow effect. Handpainted wooden base with soft sky and cloud imagery. All photos, images and designs are copyright (c) 2018 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA.

Stay Young With Me

When we were young, we thought about all the things we’d do when we got big. And now, we think about growing older and all the things we want to see and do while we can. There is still so much to see! So much to do! So many adventures yet to write.

And sometimes, we are fortunate to have a sidekick along the way.  A fellow traveler who knows your heart, or perhaps someone who crosses paths for the blink of an eye. Whether for an hour, or a lifetime, there are people who touch our hearts and coax childish joy from the simplest actions. People who approach the moment with a charmed attitude, “How fun is this?”

For all those sidekicks we’ve known, and all those we’ve yet to meet, we invite you: Stay Young With Me.

 

“Stay Young With Me” original sparkle snow globe by Camryn Forrest Designs. A tiny tree sports a moving rope swing, where two people are defying gravity and making their own breeze. Wood base with engraved plate and tiny bronze leaf embellishments.

Shake the globe and listen: You can hear their laughter on the wind.

Glimpse of a Globe

Remember when we told you that an independent movie, “The Tangle,” was featuring one of our snow globes in this very stylish neo-noir, hard sci-fi feature film? Well, the film makers have just released a teaser, and an IndieGoGo campaign for the final touches.

Without spoiling the plot, you can glimpse the globe in the film teaser, once in a revealing close up and twice more if you pay attention to the desk decor.

We’re thrilled to be part of this effort– stay tuned for updates on the project. You can see the trailer and teaser at the IndieGoGo link for “The Tangle“,  including a clip of this globe in action.

Octo-Thought

My mind is a messy tangle of tangents, reaching out every which way.  You’ve heard someone say they enter a room and can’t remember what they wanted? That happens in my thoughts: I reach in for one process and come out with an invention, or a pun, or a memory that shakes my core.

What? What were you saying? Oh, shakes my core with happiness, or was it fear, or was it simmering resentment. I can’t remember now, I’m thinking about how many flavors of ice cream there are, really. And my favorite dog, once upon a time. And how I should have sent that thank-you note when it still mattered.

If you are given to such imagery, perhaps your mind is like an octopus, with reaching, pulsing tentacles, touching one thought and repelling another. Selective thoughts, random memories. We call it, Octo-Thought.
