Spherica in your creation is an act of expressing feelings, thoughts, and observations. It is beautiful to see artists and designers embracing our life in space.
Behind the elegance of every Stellar Milieux sphere is a profound level of craftsmanship. Using a technique developed by Ana with the help of the best glassblowing master in Europe, the carefully selected meteoritic fragment of the Moon is placed inside a high-quality glass sphere. Each Spherica is handcrafted individually.
The lunar surface is fully exposed to outer space due to the absence of the atmosphere. When large asteroids hit the Moon, the collision causes lunar material to lift and disperse. The impact has to be forceful enough in order for lunar rocks to reach the Moon’s escape velocity and make it to outer space. The minimum particle speed required for this to happen is 2.38 km/s. Once the material escapes the Moon’s gravity, rock fragments are captured by the gravitational fields of either the Earth or the Sun. When such fragments fall on the Earth, they are called lunar meteorites.
YOUR INTERSTELLAR JOURNEY
Outer space starts way before the Earth's orbit. In literature, nature, music, design, art, science. Everywhere. It is so delicate. It is to be explored with curiosity and open-mindedness.
