Moonlight Ride

Silent as the stars, carried on the wind, a lone balloon on a moonlight ride. Over the sleeping city, dancing in the wisps of fireplace smoke and weaving over a thousand dreams below.

When shaken, the liquid fills with sparkling black dust and tiny reflective glitter; the sky is alive with comets and shooting stars.

One of a kind snow globe (sparkle globe) with miniature balloon and basket, riding over a tiny cityscape both inside and outside the globe.

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.)

Not recommend for looking at the solar eclipse, but perfectly effective for non-solar uses that don’t involve bright sunshine or eyeballs.  Custom snow globe design and images copyright (c) 2017, Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA.

An Airship in a Snow Globe …

Who was it who said with such certainty  “steampunk and snow globes do not go together?”

Well, I beg to differ.

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

When shaken, the mystic fog and shimmering clouds envelop the ship in a cloak of near invisibility until the light finds it, again.

Circular Logic – the snow globe returns

   Circular Logic Snow Globe Circular Logic
has made a round trip.

From Denver to Boston and now back to Denver again,
Circular logic was featured in the
“Celebrating Snow Globes”
winter exhibition
at the Sandwich Glass Museum.

Given its name, it’s a fitting journey.

One definition of Circular Logic is that the answer contains no evidence that is distinct from the conclusion. Circular logic cannot prove a conclusion because, if the conclusion is doubted, the premise which leads to it will also be doubted.

After a lot of trial and error, this is certainly true of this piece. The curious invention appears to go round and round, but always begins and ends in the same place it started. The conclusion is the same as the premise.

What does change is the murky liquid, which glistens with coppery metallic dust
when shaken.
The tiny machine measures just under two inches tall and wide,
and continues in its endless, and meaningless, journey.
Always a round trip. Of course.
