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.

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.

One of a kind sparkle/snow globe. Tiny brick doorway with figures looking toward their future. When shaken, glass globe fills with copper and bronze metallic dust. Miniature brick detail on base. Images and design copyright (c) 2021 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA.

A Bear Up There

A departure from ray guns and airships and floating islands in the sky.¬† Almost, but not quite, back to nature. You see, I really like black bears. And I had this little thought: Wouldn’t it be adorable if one found an abandoned swing in the woods and tested it out?

And it was everything we imagined, the bear up there. If bears could talk, I’m sure it would say this swing was “just right.”

A Bear Up There, one of a kind snow globe with tiny tree, swing and small black bear enjoying the ride. When shaken, the scene is bathed in iridescent micro-dust and a wealth of “gold as Goldilocks” gold glitter. Images and design copyright (c) 2017 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado, USA.

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
