A combination of yellow and ruby glass are applied to a gather of clear and fused together in an 1,800 degree furnace.

The molten combination is tooled into the image of a solar flare or prominence.

After reheating to a flowing consistency the material is blown into a cherry wood mold then tooled into a splash configuration.

The design is modeled on solar mass ejections, flowing arches and roiling hot plasma.

Large solar flares release the energy equivalent of 160 Billion Megatons of TNT.

The most powerful flare ever observed occurred on September 1, 1859.

The flare was visible to the naked-eye and produced auroras as far south as Hawaii.

The enormous amount of energy released set telegraph systems on fire.
