Galileo..Galileo..Galileo.. Figaro.. Magnifico-o-o-o


We’ve just finished a beautiful Galileo & readying it to be packed up and sent over to its new home abroad. Love the colours on this one!

Diameter: 80cm || Height: 1m

Base material: Cherry and sustainable Oak
Solid brass, hand engraved meridian with personal commissioning mark. Featuring its own unique colour system, the deep hues are created with many watercolour washes painted by hand in our London studio.

A truly individual product, exuding quality craftsmanship and skill, the Galileo would not look out of place in a grand home, hall or workspace.

Some of our favourite Galileo Galilei quotes while we are on the subject…..

“There are those who reason well, but they are greatly outnumbered by those who reason badly.”

“Passion is the genesis of genius.”

“Wine is sunlight, held together by water.”

“Measure what can be measured, and make measurable what cannot be measured.”

“I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from him.”

“You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.”

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”

“The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”
