Heavenly Spheres is a series of levitating lighting sculptures. The first in the series is a polished brass orb that hovers at an angle of 23.5 degrees above its black base.
“Heavenly Spheres is a concept that has followed me around for years. It wasn’t until I discovered magnetic levitation however, that I felt I had found the right way to materialise it.
I started with 23.5 degrees because the third of Copernicus’ Heavenly Spheres is particularly special to us. It is home. Everything that ever was, in the history of life as we know it, happened on this perfect little golden ball, suspended in blackness.”
