Star Classification glass tray

Star Classification glass tray


Spectrum observations tell us that the stars resemble the Sun, as to the general character of their composition. Their light, like that of the Sun, emanates from a matter raised to an intense white heat, and traverses an atmosphere of absorbing vapors. Yet,  each star differs from the other, though not to an essential degree, in its chemical composition. Judging them by their spectra, they may be divided into four perfectly distinct types. 

     Looking at the stars generally, they seem brilliant, like colourless diamonds, red, orange, or yellow tinted; but if they are carefully watched, or observed through a glass, we can see next to the red or orange-tinted stars others of a blue, green, or purple colour. Spectrum analysis shows us that these colours are produced by moisture in suspense in their atmospheres.

      In the potichomania process, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish, saving the step of varnishing. The original intent was to recreate Greek and Etruscan vases by simulating rare and expensive Sevrés porcelain.

  • Details

    This tray measures approximately 6x10 inches. The relative thinness of the tray – just over 1/8” thick – belies the complexity of the potichomania process. Each of our trays is comprised of a glass tray, three layers of 28# paper, four coatings of varnish, and finished with two coats, each of paint and clear acrylic spray. We’ve added a high-quality felt pad on the bottom in order to protect your home surfaces.

    Care: Please spray with a gentle glass cleanser and wipe clean. Do not submerge in water. For decorative purposes only.
