The Stargazers League I

 

A collection created as a reminder for us to stop and look up at the great sky and take a moment to ponder our place, no matter how seemingly insignificant, in the cosmos.

 

There are nights where your camp fire crackles, shooting embers high into the sky. Your eyes follow the little ember up in the pillar of orange smoke until it stops glowing and disappears. Eventually this smoke pillar disbands in the evening breeze and leaves you gazing at a lovely night sky - weighed down with shimmering stars. There are also nights when you're walking home from work. Your walk takes you through an unlit park to save you time. Beneath the haze glowing from the city, you find a collection of daring stars trying to penetrate the light pollution and catch your eye. 

This collection is a reminder to go outside, wherever you are and take a moment to look up at the stars. Remember your place in the universe and how delicate the earth is and how lucky we are to be on a life harbouring planet full of lovely people and interesting ways to spend our days. 

The Stargazers League

A collection created as a reminder for us to stop and look up at the great sky and take a moment to ponder our place, no matter how seemingly insignificant, in the cosmos.

Our Stargazers League vessels are made from a brown and iron speckled clay body over which a starry glaze flows of purples, blues, reds and greens and leaves you feeling like you’re holding a piece of the Milky Way.

 

The Whale Galaxies (Relative Size Chart)

Imagine our universe is made up of one hundred billion galaxies all in the form of whales calmly gliding through space time. There are galaxies resembling Narwhals and other galaxies resembling Humpbacks - some housing life harbouring planets and some full of gaseous spheres and asteroid belts. Next time you look at the night sky, think of the endless possibilities that lie in the unknown and imagine yourself exploring the infinite glittering sea that hovers just out of your reach. 

 
 
 
 

Galaxia Dermochelyidae

There is a myth that never quite existed except in our imagination, dreamed over a campfire under a shimmering summer night sky. A tale of a cosmic turtle, scientific name 'Galaxia Dermochelyidae', that carries all the solar systems of our galaxy on its back. While some scientists theorise that our universe was created from a big bang, this myth says that we were created in a big shell. While other scientists theorize that the Milky Way will collide with our neighbouring galaxy Andromeda, this myth gives a plausible reason to imagine that our solar system's future is perched precariously upon the back of a very large turtle, paddling carefully into the depths of the universe - hopefully avoiding collisions with any other turtles.
