When Lynn begins creating a Keepsake Ornament, he researches the subject of his work until he is comfortable with his mental plan for sculpting it from beginning to end. He draws inspiration not only from his fellow Keepsake Artists but from his childhood memories of time spent in front of the TV.
“Being the first generation to be introduced to television at an early age, I was entranced by the imaginative sets and props that were constructed to bring stories to life,” Lynn says. “As crude as they were, the science-fiction artifacts of the early 1950s still inspire me—especially when I get a chance to sculpt one of them.”
That said, it may come as no surprise to learn Lynn’s personal favorite among his Keepsake Ornaments.
“I have to say that the “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” space-station ornament is still my favorite. It was the most challenging sculpture for me and the Keepsake engineering staff,” he says. “My idea to offer it with docked miniature starship ornaments turned out to be a winning combination with Star Trek fans.”
