STARRY NIGHT… a dramatic collection marked by vivid sparks of color and starry twinkle, inspired by some of the brightest stars in the heavens… and the rich history and mythology behind them. Our color interpretations of each star are artistic renderings drawn from various sources, both scientific, historical and folklore. SHOP THE COLLECTION
We’ve included a link to the Wikipedia page for each star, for those who are interested in learning more about each star and the constallation it is in.
This inspiring collection is available in individual full size jars, sample sets and individual samples.
A favorite quote by Anais Nin which was the source of the creative seed which grew into this concept collection…
“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” — Anais Nin
