The Sparks That Caused The Fire

Artist on tumblr - @Caitlin Hackett is an illustrator and creature concept designer based out of Oakland CA.

I create work that reflects both my passion for the natural world, and my sorrow over its destruction. I am fascinated by the fragile boundary that separates humans from animals, and the way that boundary is transformed and illuminated in mythology, religious symbolism and fairy tales alike throughout different cultures around the world. I have art available for sale at

This is a modern day reproduction of a 1710 James Ferguson orrey. An orrey was a mechanical device built to demonstrate the workings of the solar system. This modern reproduction is designed to work on an electric motor and can be purchased at Curious Minds.

At the expense of being labeled a spelling Nazi, I should probably mention that this device is known as an orrery. Just saying.
