Did you know that Victorians often ornamented their gardens with gazing balls? That Southern “porch sitters” let a gazing ball’s reflection alert them to arriving guests? This crackle-glazed glass orb will add color and whimsy to your garden. Stand is sold separately. 14"h. x 10"dia.
American glass artists are in the forefront of 21st Century design. Dale Chihuly creates colorful glass orbs as striking garden elements; Jennifer Nauck’s glass birdfeeders are functional works of art; and Midwest jewelry studios are designing stunning glass statement collections. The Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum includes artworks and artisan jewelry, like the beautiful products you’ll find on these pages. Uniquely crafted architectural pieces, birdbaths and birdfeeders are also among the collections and outdoor displays of the Smithsonian Gardens.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
