|THE MANY WORLDS OF JOSH SIMPSON|
ACQUIRED FROM THE ARTIST (SHELBURNE FALLS, MASSACHUSETTS) AND FROM VESPERMANN GALLERY (ATLANTA, GEORGIA)
1 1/4" TO 10" IN DIAMETER
Josh Simpson is probably best known for his planets of glass, the largest of which are known as megaplanets. They contain virtually infinite detail... you could look at a single planet every day and see something new each time.
Because they're basically spheres (except for the very smallest worlds, which are spherical, all of Josh's planets have flat bases on which to rest), it can be difficult to discern exactly how large they each are when photographed in a neutral environment. When they're viewed separately, they all basically look like they could be the same size.
This page, then, is intended to let you see how large these works are relative to each other. Dark Persephone is just over 10 inches in diameter; the small microplanets are about 1 1/4 inches in diameter.
