The Weight of the World

This celestial globe will help keep things in perspective as you power through at the office, shuffle through paperwork at home, or simply gaze at the shiny keepsake.

Fashioned with precise glassblowing techniques and set with a fire polish, the orb cools over several days and is then polished to a shimmering glow with a diamond grinder. The result is a spaceship's view of earth from above, looking down through the clouds at the green expanses below. Its journey of creation and view of the world at large will help you keep your eye on your goals. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.
