“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans” John Lennon.

Journeys around the Sun


Our home the earth formed some 4.5 billion years ago is themed in this piece to reflect the number of times that we take this journey in our lifetime. The earth's tilt of 23.5 degrees is what gives us our seasons and just as our planet goes through these four seasons of spring summer autumn and winter so to in life we go through many ever-changing seasons and journeys towards wisdom and enlightenment. It is not the number of years in a life that count, but the life in the years lived to the fullest. The sphere is symbolic of life in many ways we often speak in terms of working in a sphere or area of activity or influence. Its circle is a symbol of oneness it is the yin and the yang it possesses the very special number Phi or 3.142 ratio of circumference to diameter, this irrational never ending number is in parallel with the continuation of life through our offspring a form of human immortality.

Our Journey's around the sun creation is split into two hemispheres containing an equator line and can hold cremains in one half and personal keepsakes in the other. The base is a tetrahedron or 4 sided pyramid chosen to highlighting its heavenly orientation and holding earth with its unique tilt of 23.5 degrees in a comforting embrace. Made with the beautiful rich Wenge and Maple or in reverse order it is symbolic of the richness of the life lived. Hand polished to a fine wax finish.
