Space Glass

Ever wanted to hold a bit of the universe in the palm of your hand? these amazing creations by Satoshi Tomizu is called Space Glass and they’re the closest thing to capturing the a galaxy in a bauble.

Tomizu is an expert glassworker, born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1980 and started working with heat-resistant glass at the age of 28. His devotion to his craft has led to the production of these beautiful glass baubles that seem to contain a chunk of the cosmos within.

The baubles, which he aptly calls Space Glass, can be hung on a chain or cord to make a pendant (yes, they’re that tiny!) to make a pendant. Most of his work contains an opal taking on the role of a planet, with tiny specks of gold arranged in such a way they look like clusters of stars.

The only way to truly describe what these look like would be to see them for yourself:

What’s more, depending on the angle you look at it, each piece of Space Glass can look totally different depending on how you look at it. Each little swirl, curve and glittery particle takes on a whole new appearance. Check it out:
