Our Family Tattoo

This is our family tattoo we got last year. It is a reference to a song that has become our family anthem over the years:

„Our House“ from Crosby Stills Nash and Young:

„Our house is a very, very, very fine house
with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ‚cause of you“

Birds fly to the stars

That’s our family crest for some years. It comes from a scene in one of our favorite movies: „Moonstruck„. The dialogue is actually rather prosaic. Cosmo Castorini the plumber has an affair and gives her a hand chain with birds and stars as pendants during a secret rendevous. He says: „Birds fly to the stars – I guess„.

I sketched the blueprint for this installation in Powerpoint (…) and sent it to a glassblower. Here is the result:
