NightOrbs featured by BeaurCombs & Associates Inc.

slide3Our handcrafted orbs were recently featured by BeaurCombs & Associates Inc., a landscape architecture firm out of Washington State.

Their post, Brighten Up Your Winter with Landscape Lighting, features NightOrbs as a fun outdoor lighting option. Here’s an excerpt from the post:

For an instant splash of outdoor color, my favorite outdoor lighting is Tom Rupnicki’s hand blown NightOrbs (Jupiter Orb shown above).  NightOrbs may be placed just about anywhere in the landscape to brighten up dark winter days and nights.  Be sure to place these beautiful artworks where they can be seen from indoor windows or entryways.

TIP:  If the ground is too frozen to install a low-voltage system, no worries, you can still enjoy NightOrbs in the daytime.  Just place NightOrbs where you want a spectacular splash of color and hook up the electricity in the spring!

NightOrbs Illuminate a Greenwich Village Garden

Last fall, we were contacted for a project in Greenwich Village in NYC. The NightOrbs team hand-crafted these beautiful glass orbs to complement a backyard garden. In our opinion, the end result is fit for a fairy tale.

Although it’s been a while since installation, the garden was recently shot by photographer Adam Bell and we thought we’d share the final product.


If this photo has you feeling inspired to take on some garden decorating of your own, feel free to check out our photo gallery. We offer NightOrbs in varying sizes, colors, and patterns. You can even opt for Hanging and WaterOrbs.
