From the award-winning glass artist Scott Pernicka. A collection of handcrafted glass vortex spheres are an amazing alchemy of glass and physics that transcend the physicality of the glass itself. The optical illusion created with high-quality glass and master craftsmanship is a visual escape in the palm of your hand.
Using science, physics, artistic vision, and meticulous attention to detail, Scott handcrafts each piece exclusively with Borosilicate (hard) glass for clarity. Shaping the glass at temperatures over 3000 degrees, a combination of 99.99% pure gold, silver, crystallized metals, or metal oxides are added to produce an array of beautiful colors. Exquisite and complex, each vortex sphere is a one-of-a-kind reflection of Scott’s passion for fine art craftsmanship that will last for generations to come.
Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.
We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.
We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday). However, we are a small team so during peak holiday season we kindly ask that you allow 3-5 days for your items to be sent on their way. Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
We will gladly offer a refund or store credit in exchange for any items returned within 30 days of the original order, as long as the items are still sealed in new condition. We cannot accept returns of opened or used items. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.
