Glass Eye Studio
Glass Eye Studio was founded on the belief that talented glass artists should have a place to work where their skills and creativity are fully appreciated. Glass Eye Studio is collected by people all over the world. Each piece they produce contains ash from the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
The 'Juno Asteroid' card states:
“One of the largest and heaviest asteroids hovering in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, Juno spans 150 miles in width. It orbits the Sun with thousands of other bits of space rock and essentially is a leftover building block of the Solar System. Like other asteroids it is misshapen rather than round and its heavy metallic surface has been churned up by constant impacts. Glass Eye artists capture this view – a rare crystal clear look at juno's surface so rough and so very far away.”
