We are honored to have been selected to create this special commemorative piece to celebrate 20 years of the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium.
Sitting high on the Mississippi River’s edge, the planetarium’s iconic dome is a work of art. The roof is blanketed with rows of scalloped shingles. Beneath the scalloped dome is an awe-inspiring space where films fascinate audiences through imagination and wonder.
I wanted to create something that captures the beauty of the architecture and the mystery it holds. On the outside of this dome pendant are hundreds of tiny scallops reminiscent of the rooftop. Stamped on the underside is the constellation “Eridanus,” known as the celestial river. I included it as an homage to the Mighty Mississippi that runs alongside the Louisiana Art & Science Museum.
The LASM is a treasure in our community, captivating young and old minds. It is home to a wide variety of impressive permanent and temporary exhibits. Add it to your Baton Rouge bucket list.
This pendant measures approximately 1" in diameter, with a 1/2" raised dome.
*The price listed above is for the pendant only. If you choose to add a chain, the updated total will be reflected in your cart.
Made by hand in our south Louisiana studio.
Each piece varies slightly due to its handmade nature.
