This hourglass created by the famous Australian designer Marc Newson is a masterpiece of engineering and precision. Its very complicated execution requires hours of work by a glass master. This limited edition work will delight the most demanding esthetes
The Hourglass is a true engineering feat. Made in Basel, Switzerland it is blown from a single piece of borosilicate glass, and it contains millions of tiny spheres made of stainless steel. Each sphere is precisely 0.6 mm in diameter and coated with fine gold and silver. When the Hour- Glass is inverted, the precision balls fall and bounce in an erratic but truly mesmeric way.
