To fly on Hot-air balloons... Dreams become true! Hand-Carved rubber stamps, set of 3.


We live nowadays in a society in which the happiness seems to be insomuch banish to daily thoughts that its search becomes something about which to feel ashamed or to condemn as a kind of dangerous childish game. A game that adults, with their conceit, can simply settle saying "you will change growing up!". I am not surprised if these persons are the same that swapped the happiness with the consumerism and that are spending their whole life following continuously fleeting trends, persuaded that their frustrations derive from the fact that they do not own yet the latest model of car, for buying which with they could be disposed to do anything and to discover that, once get, it is already obsolete... A perverse device for which the great part of persons finds themselves to have a job that they hate only to buy things that they don't need, to impress persons about which they don't care nothing.
To find into such an apocalyptic scenario few exceptions that don't give up to consumerism, it is not only gratifying for me but it also consents us to catch a glimpse of the precious hope of an alternative...
The poetic blog of Sélunair dedicated to montgolfières gives me rise to this thought. Here's the idea to carve a stamp set of Hot-air balloons born in me; I've seen in this flying balloon the symbol of the authentic search for happiness, that is the pure pleasure able to fully gratify us. Flying with a montgolfière represents the dream that born since we were children. It is like a kind of hula-hoop that surrounds the emotion of childhood succeeding magically to reconcile us with the worst disgrace of our life: to be never adults and then to discover, suddenly, to be no longer children.





Stamps are carved in a high quality plastic eraser and are mounted on wood for easy stamping. They are placed into a fabric tote decorated with the stamps features.

Merci pour ce joli travail et pour la référence au blog.
C'est vrai que voler a toujours été le rêve de l'homme et la magie de la montgolfière reste inégalée depuis des siècles.
Désolée d'écrire en Français mais je ne suis pas douée en anglais.
Ce serait sympa de mettre un traducteur sur ton blog...
bisous
