Artist's Statement
& Technique
  SOLD Marbles

Gold Moon series
All Gold is formed in the fiery heart of a collapsing star also known as a supernova. It takes an explosion of this magnitude to create heavy elements of 30 protons or more.
Gold, with 79 protons, is extremely rare especially since nature likes the stability of even numbered elements.

The Gold Moon Series of Universe Marbles celebrates this precious metal. Each gold moon is a  solid ball of 24k pure gold floating within the marble.
Based on the proximity of Earth to past supernova, the gold in these marbles has traveled some three million light years in its lifetime.
