Item No. 1187
Metal oxides are fumed and spun onto a gather of hot glass creating the effect of a spinning galaxy containing
a billion stars.
The design is inspired by the 1997 movie Men in Black where a tiny galaxy is contained in a marble ornament hanging from "Orion's Belt."
The design is cased in crystal clear glass and a facet is cut creating a window for peering into the cosmos.
The window allows the design elements to be viewed as two distinct images:
One is a magnified view using the magic of refraction provided by the curvature of the globe.
The other is a direct view of the spinning galaxy.
"Great, thanks for the quick turn around."
