Moulding Plane: Cassiopeia
A moulding plane marked with the changing pattern of the stars (as seen from Earth) that comprise the constellation of Cassiopeia. The blue stars show it looked from our perspective 50 millennia ago, the white stars how it looks now, and the red stars how it will look in 100 millennia, with list of the star's traditional names - Shedir, Caph, Tsih , Ruchbah and Segin - on the rear.
Graeme writes curious tales and creates chapbooks and other diverse artworks, some of which can be seen at his colvabooks blog, found here. He spent ten years writing and podcasting on film; longer pieces written for various publications over the years are collected at his bythebluestofseas blog, which is found here.
