Deborah and her boss wanted to create a really rustic-looking globe to represent the wilderness of the area, so they sent me across this image they liked with the very organic-looking base. They also requested that we feature a traditional Native American cabin from the region, as well as the native Redwood Trees, rather than the usual pine tree design. The final touch was a black bear with resplendent Santa hat I feel extremely honored to make these snow globes for the Bear River Band tribe – I’m a passionate supporter of indigenous rights and it makes me very proud to contribute to their story in some small way. Thanks to Deborah and her boss for trusting me to make these beautiful snow globes. Yet another stop for me on my future trip across America – I really want to see one of those plank houses!
