Unique Solid Glass Planets
"
As a kid I was fascinated by marbles and the way colors swirled and twisted inside them. I began making Planets for school children after seeing the photograph of Earth the Apollo Astronauts took on their return from the moon. We've all seen that photo: it made our expansive Earth seem like a precious little blue marble floating in the black void of space! In my glass Planets I try to capture that feeling, and imagine the countless ways other worlds might look, in other solar systems and galaxies.”

Note: Simpson glass is photographed in strong studio light to reveal the maximum depth and detail of each piece. Colors may vary slightly in different lighting situations.
