Snow Global

Love, love, love these ‘snow globes‘ by UK designer, Neil Conley.  Eerily beautiful with a powerful message.  Think about it:
“A series of snow globes created in response to the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, 2010.
Shaped by a number of key principles, the snow globes embody the throw-away, novel plastic gifts that have become one of the oil industries many parasites – Whilst in the same breath, act as a warped preservation of the wildlife affected by the spill and its inherent beauty.”
