Dream Focusing Device, ©2007, 8 x 5.5 x 6 inches, brass, sterling silver, fabricated. Instructions for use: Exposing the Dream Focusing Device to moonlight during a full moon activates the metallic principles in the instrument. It will focus dreams for 28 days after a 2 to 3 hour exposure, but will lose power slowly over that period of time. Short exposures to moonlight throughout the month will recharge the metallic principles. Recharging can even occur on cloudy nights, although the time needed will increase with the amount of cloud cover.

A device to help me to remember more dreams, and to make the content more mystical. There is a blog entry here.

The design on the front was etched with ferric chloride. I drew the curving lines with a marker pen, but the blobby things that look like groups of islands were a lucky mistake. I suspect they were trapped air bubbles.

The moon texture on the back was painstakingly created with a felt tip marker before etching in ferric chloride.
