Amateur astronomers can find Messier 51a, known as the Whirlpool Galaxy, with telescopes trained on the night sky; it's even possible to make out the distinctive spiraling arms for which it's named. A black hole is thought to live at the galaxy's heart, surrounded by rings of dust. Part of Glass Eye Studio's Celestial Series: A marriage of science and art as unique designs reveal the mystery of heavenly bodies. All glass from Glass Eye Studio's Seattle studio is individually crafted by artists, not machines. This ensures that every piece has its own unique characteristics, just like the individuals who collect it. Everything from Glass Eye Studio contains ash from the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. Approximately 3" diameter. All pieces are signed and presented with story cards in a keepsake box.
