Satoshi Tomizu is an awesomely talented glass artist in Japan who captures planets, stars, and moons in tiny glass pendants. Prepare to be amazed.
Satoshi uses air bubbles, opals, and flakes of gold to craft the minuscule frozen galaxies.
Most of the pendants from the “Space Glass” series have won international awards (understandably).
They make us want to dive inside.
The pendants have a loop attached so, just like the little alien in Men In Black, you can wear a whole galaxy round your neck.
Each pendant is made by hand and no two “Space Glass” pieces are alike.
Viewed from different angles, the pendants sparkle and seem to move in the light.
Satoshi began working with heat-resistant glass at the age of 28 and has spent years perfecting his delicate craft.

Satoshi also draws inspiration from flowers, capturing the petals in glass.
Although his floral designs still feel a little intergalactic.
This blooming flower could be a space firework.
