Over the years, we’ve been delighted to hear from our customers and know that they share our appreciation for color and light. As gratifying as it is for me to create the Nightorbs™, it’s even more rewarding for me to know others derive pleasure and even inspiration from them.
~ Tom Rupnicki, Founder of NightOrbs
I ordered some NightOrbs outdoor lights for my wife as a gift. We live in Minnesota where the weather in the winter can be a bit cold (-30º) and in the summer it is hot (over 100º). Tom assured me the Orbs would handle the weather. They have! The Orbs have been outside in the elements for several years and look like new! My wife loves them and they are always a conversation piece.

NightOrbs provide the pizzazz that many outdoor spaces long for. They are beautiful glowing glass orbs that softly glow in a landscape space and people can’t help notice them, talk with their companions about them, and desire to have them in their own garden space.
~Janet Lennox Moyer, Landscape lighting designer
I found Night Orbs to be an excellent company to work with, Tom was extremely helpful and turned the project around quickly. The reflecting pool feature at Body English Tuesday would not be the same without the glowing orbs! Thx so much Tom

Tom Rupnicki’s NIghtOrbs can be described as uniquely beautiful! Sequim, WA’s foremost photographer Phil Tauran has committed our memorizing pieces of illumination to posterity! Tom’s NightOrbs are not simply “lighting pieces.” They are works of art. One such orb that we placed in the center of our Mandala is so beautiful it takes our breath away! They are especially luminous in water settings … we have them installed in two zen ponds/waterfalls. Bamboo appears especially wistful under the spell of these orbs! Notwithstanding their night-time “magic,” NightOrbs are also very beautiful displays of art glass during the day! They highlight and complement various plantings akin to having multi-dimensional paintings in the garden! And they endure winter temperatures!! If you love glass, if you love light, if you love art, you will love Tom’s NightOrbs. Recapture that feeling of falling in love … over and over again. Truly, we are star-struck!

I have purchased over 24 Night Orbs during the past 5 years of different colors and sizes. The stunning appearance both during the day and when lit at night are hard to describe in words alone. Each Orb is like a work of art, individual in appearance even from other Orbs that are the same color. I live in Reno, NV where the temperature ranges from 8 degrees to 105 degrees on the high side. Snow and temperature changes do not bother these Orbs, since the sphere is one of the strongest shapes in nature. Many people compliment me on the Orbs when they visit my home because they are so unique and complement the landscaping so well. I have sold Orbs to two neighbors who fell in love with the 19 Orbs at my home, and am now adding a permanent display of Night Orbs to sell through my Lighting Business here in Reno.

I have been using Tom’s NightOrbs for several years now. Every single one of my clients is thrilled with the product. Each Orb is truly a work of art and I will continue to use NightOrbs to enhance my lighting designs.
~George Hartner, Outdoor Illumination of the Carolinas
Tom has been very willing to work with us over the years. We have created several customized jobs for some of our high-end clients and have never been disappointed. I have personally visited his studio and he has visited our jobs where his product is installed. I would highly recommend working with Tom.

I originally saw NightOrbs in an article in “This Old House” magazine. I ordered one to start and was impressed by the quality of workmanship not only with the glass part but of all the components. This prompted me to order the other two to finish off a backyard area. I am happy with the results.

We recently installed one of Tom’s distinctive orbs on a short pole on our deck. It has a swirly blue-yellow-green-red pattern and is lit from within. It looks something like a planet seen from space.
The globe is one of our favorite decorative elements. It looks beautiful during the day and especially in the evening when the timed light turns on. It’s quite bright. We see it from the inside thru our glass doors and it’s also visible from the road.
We are so pleased and we know and like Tom as a person.

NightOrbs™ allow us to offer our discerning customers something completely custom and unique,something they cannot get anywhere else. We enjoy adding the elegance of “art” to the landscape with both our lighting and with Tom’s NightOrbs™.
~ Jerry McKay, McKay Landscape Lighting
As many years as I have gardened—Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Switzerland, and on the Marmaris in Istanbul—I have never derived so much pride, pleasure or joy as I do now from these truly magnificent NightOrbs that I prefer to call my very own interplanetary galaxy of stars!
~ Suyin Karlsen, Sequim, WA
When I first discovered NightOrbs™ at the Philadelphia Flower Show, I was taken aback. These multi-colored orbs are simply wonderful to work with. They add a magical dimension to the landscape, especially at night. They create wonderful focal points. I especially like to use them in groupings. I recommend incorporating them into the design in all my new projects.
