Gearly Beloved

Step one, make a tiny hat, then add tinier goggles.

Step Two, float a headless goggled hat, a bowler to be specific, in the lazy liquid of a snow globe.

Step Three, shake the globe. When shaken, fill the liquid with swirling dark mystery, and a gaggle of tiny gear-shaped metallic bits, and one — just one — black top hat confetti piece.  (Yes, it’s there, in the photos, but you have to really want to see it.)

Winter … Is Coming

When you are standing in the record-breaking heat of summer, looking for a spot of shade at an arts festival, but finding mostly asphalt and sunshine, remind yourself …

Celebrating Snow Globes – on Display

It’s a big honor to have our snow globes displayed in a museum!

Five unique snow globes created by Camryn Forrest Designs are on display for the rest of November and all of December as part of the “Celebrating Snow Globes” exhibit at the Sandwich Glass Museum in Sandwich, Mass. This is about an hour’s drive from Boston, or an hour’s drive from Providence. If you go there, you’ll see an entire collection of snow globes, both antique and modern.

Here’s what is on display from Camryn Forrest Designs:

Airship Voyager, Uncharted Skies, Sacramento Steampunk Society snow globe (courtesy Collection of Doug Hack), Ray Gun One, and Circular Logic snow globes.

And bonus: the Airship Voyager snow globe is the  featured globe on the front of the Sandwich Glass Museum December brochure. So cool!
