It's Science

The Hubble theory proposes that our universe is infinitely expanding from a centralized point, called the Hubble Constant. Earth is near this point, which gives us a view of the universe from the inside out. This beautiful cosmic orb gives us a shimmering look at what the universe might look like from the outside looking in.

Hand-blown in a variety of vibrant hues, the celestial beauty of these orbs is achieved by trapping shimmering copper filaments in a repetitive outward expansion of air, creating a layered bubble display. Handmade in Nevada.

Studying with any glass workers willing to share, Ryan has had the opportunity to work glass in a variety of ways. Ryan's knowledge of this material artistically as well as scientifically allows him to approach this limitless art with a very broad understanding. Ryan's love for the art grew to the next level in 2008 when he decided to open The Burnt Knuckle. His idea was to create place where he could develop artistically while introducing others to the art as well.

    Comments about HANDBLOWN COSMIC ORBS:

    I have three orbs hanging in different colors from leather strings and they are beautiful. Even more special is I had three orbs made with the cremains of my son and one with the cremains of my mom. I gave one each to my daughters with their brother's ashes and they loved them. I have the others with my son's and mom's ashes and I couldn't have asked for anything more special. Burnt Knuckle worked with me in choosing the colors and the ash orbs have flat bottoms so they can sit on a shelf. Will be recommending Burnt Knuckle to everyone I talk to about these beautiful Hubble Bubbles.

      So beautiful! Much larger than I expected but the artistry is worth it. Note: these are as large or slightly larger than a softball & heavy in weight. Will make gorgeous sun catchers BUT too large & heavy for Xmas tree ornament (which was my original intent). Pleasantly surprised though - excellent value for $28 per orb. I ordered one in every color even when I thought they were small! So pleased I did. Hate to see these being discontinued. Snap up as many as you can!!

      Comments about HANDBLOWN COSMIC ORBS:

      Exquisite product. Bought to replace my daughter's treasured ornament which I broke! This is way too heavy to hang on a tree, but is displayed as an ornament. Would probably re-market as a display item and provide a stand which I am now looking for.
