Inspire Through Color & Light

October 30, 2009

"It is our intention to evoke, through color and light, the subtle qualities that inspire the human spirit." Founder of NightOrbs

Bring a new feature to a nighttime garden habitat with the gentle light and radiant color of NightOrbs™

Tom Rupnicki first had the idea of bringing hand-blown glass into the landscape 10 years ago. He chose a spherical shape because it is thought to be the most flawless form. Fused with color and light, "NightOrbs™ are an ethereal presence in a garden, an object of beauty, a cause for meditation and an extremely durable and practical landscape illuminator."

"Light creates a sense of place. It functions as a stimulus. The light pattern in a space creates a response from a viewer. If the light changes in a space, the person’s feeling or reaction to the space will change. Human beings are dynamic - continually changing. This applies to the sensitivity of both the eye and the brain to light. Under differing circumstances the human interpretation of a space will change." ~Janet Lennox Moyer

Color also produces a reaction in a observer. The correct fusion and position of colors can create an emotional experience, like viewing Monet’s "Water Lilies".

"The color blends for NightOrbs™ result from my own reactions to color and light. The recipes have evolved over time and are kept only after having proven their impact - their ability to sing - in the garden.

My vision in creating NightOrbs™ was to marry the healing effects of light, color and nature into a lasting, original piece of landscape art that can be enjoyed in gardens year-round - and for years to come!"
