The Dreamsphere is a
Radiant Light Sphere, a completely new and original
concept which was visualised, researched
by innovative artist John Lowe. Its unique properties
make it one of the most
fascinating ways to see
brilliant iridescent colours.
John Lowe has become a world recognised artist who
specialises in the use of 'structural' colours and has
sold his work in over 50 countries.
Although officially retired now, he continues to make
his Dreamspheres although the secrets of their
production process remain a closely guarded secret.
Nobody else knows how to make these unique and beautiful
"Like a crystal clear ball filled with the iridescent
shards of a broken rainbow."
Dreamspheres are a radical
departure from conventional art!
innovations allow the viewer to interact with the
spheres to produce an ever-changing
array of colourfull abstract patterns.
It is very similar to the precious gem described in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The
Where do these colours
that we see in everyday life are known as fixed or ‘static’
colours and are the result of dyes, colours, pigments
or metallics being used in a material. These colours
never change no matter what angle they are viewed from.
The Dreamsphere does not use these conventional ‘static’
colours and is, in theory, completely transparent!
Colour without pigments?
The other type of colours we are able to see are known
as ‘structural’ colours and these are typically more
visually striking than conventional ‘static’ colours.
The iridescent wings of a butterfly, for example, rely on having
‘structural’ colours whereby light is split into
different frequencies by a geometric arrangement of
The scales of a butterfly magnified to show how the
arrangement of cells produces colour.
Despite being physically
transparent, each Dreamsphere generates millions
of iridescent ‘structural’ colours by
fracturing light at molecular level. This has
never been done before making the Dreamsphere a
totally unique experience.
'nanostructures' inside the spheres interfere
with light, splitting it into different colours depending on the

This is where advanced
technology is used to create a visually
stimulating experience that is rare to see.
The materials used and the various
processes involved in creating Dreamspheres are
a closely guarded secret.
The spheres are not
made from glass as might be expected, but are
many times stronger than glass.
They are made from a
combination of materials that are unique to the Dreamsphere.
The techniques used in

there are now over 38 separate
stages involved, taking up to two weeks to complete from
start to finish.
Each sphere is entirely hand-crafted by John and
therefore only available in limited numbers. No two
