Elliptical Galaxy ~ Stone Scarf
Or from a galaxy far, far away!
We had been at a book store and saw a photo book with images taken by the Hubble telescope. It was fascinating how images from deep outer space reflected the images of our stone. Micro to macro.
The orbicular granite in this image is an uncommon plutonic rock type that is usually granitic in composition. These rocks have a unique appearance due to orbicules- concentrically layered, spheroidal structures, probably formed through nucleation around a grain in a cooling magma chamber.Using high magnification lens we capture images deep within the microscopic typography of the stone and can transport the viewer into a micro world, far beyond what the naked eye perceives. Then we transfer those images onto luxurious fabric for "Stone Scarves”! Chiffon, lightweight and translucent, is the material of choice for our scarves as it allows for the printed design to be visible on both sides. The ultra-sheer fabric is printed using ecologically-safe transfer sublimation inks that provide vibrant color and strong wash durability. The printing process consumes no water and uses non-toxic bio-degradable inks. (We recommend washing machine with phosphate free detergent on a warm or cool delicate setting. Tumble dry low or line-dry)
Select size either (approximately) 36"x52" or 52"x72 and we will ship your beautiful scarf to you!
All of our macro photographs are of our own stone; cut and polished, exposing the natural beauty inside.
