Dust/Snow Globe Series coming soon!

April 21, 2010 | Filed in: Art Shows, mixed media | No Comments »

This is the first in a series of homemade snow globes. Inspired by the history of the survivors of the Dust Bowl, there is a small prairie house (made out of Sculpty clay) inside an upside down canning jar that is full of water and fine red sand. When the viewer shakes and turns over the Dust Globe, the sand swirls around the little house in a visual likeness to the dust storms of the 1930s. This series plays with the tension between romantic rural imagery and the harsh reality of surviving in extreme environments. I’m excited to announce that I have almost completed the first round of this series– so stay tuned for images of more snow/dust globes!
