Vulcan: The Famous Planet that Never Existed

In the 19th century, French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier hypothesized a planet that would have existed in an orbit between Mercury and the Sun. His propsal - supported by the knowledge of physics at the time, and multiple unexplained amateur "sightings" - was dispelled in 1915 when Einstein's theory of relativity provided a new understanding of gravity. Artists at the Glass Eye Studio have created this planet as Le Verrier may have imagined.  

Includes story card, and is signed signed and dated.

Glass Eye Studio products contain ash from the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption.

About The Maker

About Glass Eye Studio

(Seattle, Washington)

Glass Eye Studio was founded in 1978 with the mission to provide young glass artists the opportunity to make a living while they develop their artistic voice. Today, Glass Eye has multiple aspiring artists who work in conjuntion with the core team of talented glass blowers who make the company strong.

Everything sold by Glass Eye Studio is made by hand in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Because each item is produced individually, there can be slight differences among pieces, giving each its own artisian character.  Each piece that Glass Eye produces includes fragments from Mt. St. Helens 1980 eruption!

So many prominent glass blowers have spent time at Glass Eye Studio, that local artists like to say "All roads lead to "The Eye".
