Glass Eye Studio - Celestial Supernova

A Supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines an entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the Sun before fading from view over several weeks or months. Our rendition of this spectacular display features bright blues and shimmering golds. The artists at Glass Eye Studio remind us of the forces held within the Universe with this portrayal of a Supernova's aftermath.

A stunning paperweight and/or decorative piece of art, The Celestial Supernova Paperweight is part of the Celestial Planet Collection.  It makes a wonderful gift for both personal and corporate occasions, or it can be the perfect addition to your own Glass Eye Studio Collection.  

3" wide in diameter, it comes in a beautiful velvet keepsake box with a story card that tells its unique tale. A blend of imagination, science, art and creativity, this Glass Eye Studio Celestial paperweight is fascinating.  There is a special effect on this dichroic glass that makes it change colour when it reflects or transmits light.  

All Glass Eye Studio products are handmade and individually crafted by artists.  They are made with the ash from Mount St. Helens volcano eruption (in Washington state) that occurred at 8:32:17 A.M. on Sunday, May 18, 1980.

A Supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines an entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the Sun or any ordinary star is expected to emit over its entire life span, before fading from view over several weeks or months. In a moment, a tranquil star's surrounding can be set into a chaotic thermonuclear explosion. An intense Supernova is over in a galactic millisecond, but the echo remains. Supernova Remnants, a conglomerate of colourful plasma and gases, pulse through the Universe at 6-million miles per hour and rich unimaginable temperatures.  Furthermore, the expanding shock waves from supernova explosions can trigger the formation of new stars. Supernova, the superlative of "explosion"
