Give Them Science, Magic, and Alchemy
The space shuttle may have been grounded, but you can gift them the sun, the moon and the stars with these wonderful works of light. Gina Beavers’ hand painted gold prints on black paper are at once regal, deco and geometrically mod. At $100 a pop, they’re some of the strongest original and affordable works of art we’ve seen this season.
Out of the darkroom, Caleb Charland’s Bouncing Penlight Photo is retro cool, and far more affordable than an original Man Ray.
Can’t commit to one static image? Grab your sleeping bag and gaze at the stars without ever leaving home. The DIY Romantic Star Projector will delight big and small kids alike. It’s magically programmable to project the night sky for any day of the year wherever one decides to spend the night.
