Blown Glass Solar System Ornaments Make an out of This World Tree

 |  |  |  |  |  |  December 5, 2014


Growing up, we always saw this a glass blower at a booth in the mall on the weekends. It was awesome to see the guy make glass bowls and little figures. I always though it look like a lot of fun, but was very complicated to do. That said, I never saw that glass blower make anything as complex looking as these hand blown Christmas ornaments.

These ornaments are made to look like all the planets in our solar system and they look very accurate. Jupiter has the big red spot and Saturn has rings etched using data from the Cassini probe. The small ornaments are about 2-inches in diameter with the larger being 4-inches and Saturn being about 4.5-inches with the rings.

The artist claims the ornaments are made from thick glass and are more durable than they look. I would love to have a set of these, but they are $375 per set on Amazon. That’s a lot of money, but for handmade glass art, it’s not so bad.
