'Jewel of the Universe' is a portrait of the Earth and a homage to the brilliance of its life. Created from a third of a million hand-cut pieces of stained glass, over 60,000 Swarovski crystals, 4 rubies, 3 emeralds and a diamond, it is the most detailed and awe-inspiring stained glass micro-mosaic ever created. It was created in loving honour of our world, especially its precious life - a world that’s endlessly fascinating, endlessly beautiful ... a world with an aliveness that beams out into the universe as if with the chorus ‘here we all are, there's nothing better, there never will be.”

‘Amazing and absolutely stunning’
Richard Long, record 4-time Turner Prize nominee and 1989 winner

‘Unlike anything you have seen before … a unique and original work of art’
A.S. Akin, Quanticle
