All the rare earth metals we use to produce color in molten glass trace their origins to the nuclear furnaces within celestial bodies.
This chemistry was then distributed throughout the universe during super nova cataclysms.
Our Ruby Star Rondelle uses transparent color rods over alternating layers of clear and opaque colored glass.
By applying the opaque and transparent colors in the proper sequence we are able to model the Hubble deep field Images of active nebula.
Light enters through the transparent ruby layer then reflects off the opaque fire layers within the design creating depth and luminosity.
The Hubble star nursery image on the left provides the inspiration for the design and informs the process.
The design depicts a star in its early formative stage where dense interstellar clouds of hydrogen gas collapse into spheres of plasma which ignite into the searing hot celestial bodies that power our universe.
