The Cloud Factory

Those of you that follow my banter on Twitter will know that I have been really excited about my "Cloud Factory". I ordered it on Etsy as a treat to me for making it through a hard month and I could have jumped for joy and hugged my postie when it arrived!



The creators of this lovely bit of ceramic fancy declare that we:

"Put down the science books. Clouds are made in factories."

I believe them! I always suspected that my science teacher knew nothing about "reality".



My cloud factory arrived in a box within a box and shrouded in clouds.



I feel a little spark of delight every time I look at it.



Such detail has gone into this handmade whimsical warehouse. I found this article that shows how each of these creations come to life. Take a look here!

I am tipping my hat and applauding Pearson Maron for bringing this object of sublime joy into my life. Even our Daruma likes it!



I think this would make a brilliant quirky Christmas gift....not that I am thinking of giving mine away NO WAY!

Get yer own!
