Each Dreamsphere is a unique, hand-crafted work of art - where atoms are arranged to produce color in the same way butterfly wings are given their color. Dreamspheres refract light at different frequencies within the visible spectrum, and produce colors that are more brilliant and striking than pigment-based "static" colors.
Unlike static colors (which always remain the same) the structural colors in a Dreamsphere will change as the viewing angle changes, producing a prismatic and hypnotic display of color as the orb is turned in the hand (please view the video below to see this effect, which cannot be captured by still photography).
The photos are of DreamSpheres in full sun, when used as suncatchers. They also find uses in spiritual healing, stress relief & relaxation, metaphysical enlightenment, color therapy, meditation, Feng Shui, and clairvoyance. They act make great display items, act as a mood changer and make great gifts for anyone with a desk. (Tick the "Make it a Paperweight!" checkbox above and John will make your Dreamsphere flat on one side so it can be used as a paperweight (see the image for an example). He won't charge you to do this!
Dreamspheres are created from a simulated crystal that is less dense than glass, but twice as strong. They are handcrafted and polished, and come bagged in a gift box.
The Large Dreamsphere is 2&7/8" (72mm). It weighs 8.7 ounces. Dreamspheres are also available in a smaller size that measures 2&1/2" (64mm) and weighs 6 ounces.
This work will be custom made to order, may vary slightly from the example(s) shown & will ship separately from the rest of your order direct from the artist. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks for delivery.
I recently ordered a Dreamsphere by John Lowe through you as a Christmas gift. I was totally delighted with the magnificent globe and it will be a family heirloom for many generations to come. The opalesque sphere sits beside my bed and colors my dreams with its myriad facets. Give John my thanks and congratulations on creating true works of art.

Love this marble, and so do my grandchildren. It shines its rainbow in all directions. I hope that one day they will come in a smaller size so I can have a handful of sparkles!

This is very beautiful, we love it!! We bought an LED rotating clear light base to sit it on. My husband made a solid color ring for it to sit on so it doesn't roll off. The LED clear lights are beautiful shining through it!! We are so glad we bought it!! The only place we could find the "clear" LED rotating light base was on EBay. You can also turn it every so often to change how you're viewing it. Beautiful colors!!! You want the ring to sit it on to be a little larger that the area the lights are in. And you also want the rotating base to have an AC adapter cord because batteries are not strong enough to turn the rotating base.
