Wedding Mobile

Currently I've got a few wedding presents in the making - the one pictured to the right: the customer had a poem that her friends had chosen for their wedding invitation - I wrote the lines of the poem on the glass pieces, and then the back of the red piece with the flowers on it has their name and the date of the wedding. The white piece I signed on the back.

(this is how it reads on the glass)
Two lives
two hearts
joined together
in friendship
forever love.

I'll post more later about another wedding project I've been working on with a friend of mine! Its spectacular!

I like the symbolism of a mobile with a wedding present - its colorful and personal and people love them because we all had them as babies, so when we look at them instinctively we feel relaxed and happy (like a baby waking up in the morning - or at least thats my theory) . The movement and kinetic nature of the mobile is like life itself, and definitely like marriage - its constantly changing and always beautiful. Its a good reminder there is always balance in life.
