A Galaxy Not So Far Away

This celestial orb can provide a little daily reminder to reach for the stars every day. Fashioned with precise glassblowing techniques and set with a fire polish, the ball cools over several days and is then polished to a shimmering glow with a diamond grinder. A sliver of moon and a swoosh of star are all you need to get lost in this gem's trance. Handmade in Seattle, Washington.

Glass Eye Studio

For 35 years, the highly skilled artisans and creative glass designers at Glass Eye Studio have designed and created exquisite handmade glass items in Seattle, WA. The process from start to finish creates the true beauty and mystery of glass. Beginning by applying immense heat to a mixture of mostly sand, glass evolves. Each individual piece begins by gathering a precise amount of glass on the end of a blowpipe or rod. To reach the desired look, our blowing team uses a wide array of color and materials. Their mission is clear, to create excellent handmade glass designs in an affordable price range, which have lasting quality. To assure that the artisans at Glass Eye Studio are creating the finest collectible American art glass, our talented team takes special care to handcraft each item individually. Starting each night with melting glass for the next day’s use, through all the steps of handcrafting, quality inspection, and shipping collection
