What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?




Satoshi Tomizu

These are the glorious miniature universes by Japanese artist Satoshi Tomizu. He starts his beautiful creations with a center of pearl or opal, then adds layers of clear and colored glass and gold leaf to form realistic-looking galaxies. They look to me like if Horton listened very closely, he might have heard a tiny who.

He also makes pieces featuring flowers and, in rare cases, jellyfish. And these complex beauties are made to be worn as pendants. This is going to be a tough one for me to resist!

Here is Tomizu creating his beautiful pieces.

And because it’s now in my head (and I thought it might be in yours), here’s Horton, hearing things.
