Birthplace of Aviation

Project Info

Client Global Love Dayton

Project Description

It was an absolute honour to produce these custom snow globes for Kelly, of Dayton Ohio. Kelly tracked me down through a friend of hers, and one of my past clients, Ricia from Victoria Theatre in Dayton Ohio.

Kelly plans to create a series of different snow globes representing landmarks from her home town of Dayton. This first globe represents the very famous Wright Brothers, who started their history-making journey as residents of Dayton.

The snow globe features:

  • The bicycle shop where the brothers originally worked
  • The field they first flew from, including the catapult and memorial stone
  • The mansion they owned after becoming famous
  • The Dayton bell tower
  • One of the brothers’ signature fliers

Kelly was a wonderful and enthusiastic client to work with throughout the production process, and I had the pleasure of meeting her in person recently, when she travelled to the Las Vegas Souvenir and Gift Show just to see me! I can’t wait to work on more of Kelly’s wonderful designs in the coming months and years!
