The Crystal Spheres

Description

Made from K9 Optical Borosilicate the Solar System sphere is made from 2 halves into which the coloured planets are set before being bonded together and polished.
It is our most popular sphere to accompany the Thermomotor, adding splashes of growing and receeding colour as the planets give the illusion of rotating within the crystal.
The sphere is approximately 80mm in diameter and weighs around 570 grams.

SOLAR SYSTEM
Internally modelled 80mm

Description

Made from a single sphere of K9 Optical Borosilicate, the incredibly fine detail of the dandelion seeds are etched inside the glass using a dual-laser process.
The three ‘loose’ seeds appear to float away as the sphere rotates and, catching light from various directions, the head itself seems to appear and disappear during rotation.
The sphere is approximately 80mm in diameter and weighs around 640 grams.

DANDELION CLOCK
Internally etched 80mm

Description

Made from a single sphere of K9 Optical Borosilicate, the detail of the continents are etched onto the surface of the sphere along with fine lines of lattitude and longitude.
As the sphere rotates the etched areas absorb and diffuse the light from the tealight producing a soft and ever changing glow within the glass.
The sphere is approximately 70mm in diameter and weighs around 470 grams.

EARTH
Surface etched 70mm

Description

Made from a single sphere of K9 Optical Borosilicate, the detail of the continents are etched onto the surface of the sphere along with fine lines of lattitude and longitude.
As the sphere rotates the etched areas absorb and diffuse the light from the tealight producing a soft and ever changing glow within the glass.
Being smaller and lighter it will tend to rotate faster than the other spheres.
The sphere is approximately 60mm in diameter and weighs around 275 grams.

EARTH
Surface etched 60mm

Description

Made from a single sphere of K9 Optical Borosilicate, the fine detail of the continents and lines of latitude & longitude are etched inside the glass using a dual-laser process.
This etching picks up the light from the tealight and other sources to create ever-changing patterns as the globe rotates.
The sphere is approximately 80mm in diameter and weighs around 620 grams.

EARTH
Internally etched 80mm

Description

Ghostly and serene, the fine detail of our moon’s face are etched inside a solid sphere of K9 Optical Borosilicate crystal using a dual-laser process.
As it rotates the familiar features of the moon tantalisingly appear and disappear in the most subtle way.
The sphere is approximately 80mm in diameter and weighs around 620 grams.
