This Hourglass is a true engineering feat, made in Basel, Switzerland, entirely hand blown by one piece of borosilicate glass. The first few silver plated nanoballs bounce into the glass chamber with a truly mesmerizing sound, similar to that of a rain shower. The construction and shaping of the glass has been completed entirely by eye.
