Globe is a suspended handblown glass ball in 12" and 8" diameters. The design of the Globe creates a unique viewing perspective of plants and other elements, often providing intense magnification or complete disappearance.
The nearly invisible power cord used for each globe is made possible by utilizing micro-wire technology developed for wearable electronics. Combined with discrete but incredibly strong stainless steel cable, the Globe floats in the air, drawing the full focus to the elements inside the Globe. In this way, Globe is very much an evolving vessel of both matter and light.

Richard Clarkson Studio is a Brooklyn based art and design laboratory. We create objects, products and installations that are minimal in style, honest in material, elegant in simplicity and sculptural to the core. Distorting the ever-blurring lines between art & design, we use processes and methodologies drawn from both disciplines. We offer services in consultancy, product and experience design. We also operate as an in-house fabrication facility with an evolving range of pieces available for commission and sale.
