Keeping with the theme of unpredictable globes, non-traditional, quirky and sometimes downright odd, we didn’t see a need to create a snow globe that had been done a thousand times before. There are plenty of places you can find a holiday-themed snow globe, you don’t need us for that ordinary task.
But … we started a tradition last year, by request. We create one quirky version of a holiday snow globe, just for our own demented joy.
This year, it’s Twisted Santa.
Santa’s not twisted, as in demented, he’s twisted in that his beard and other details are all made from hand-twisted silver wire, right down to the curlicue eyebrows. The tiny gold rimmed spectacles are made from jump rings, and the airy santa hat is created from bendable sculpture wire mesh. Santa’s face and head are sculpted from clay, the base is painted wood finished with a leather reindeer collar and jingle bells. Yes, when you shake the globe to see the shimmery silver snow goodness flutter about, you’ll hear sleigh bells at the same time.
