All-glass models

    Here you can see Stormglasses where ampoule and pedestal are connected together and both are made from glass. These models are made periodically in small series, around 10 pieces. If required, we can supply more pieces. On request we can make different size of each type of depicted Stormglass.

 

Basic types of series CS

 

Spherical (CS-1)

Spherical ampoules can be made in diameters from 3 cm (1.2 inch) to 11 cm (4.3 inch).

    Depicted model is 60 mm (2.4 inch) in diameter, overall height is 80 mm (3.1 inch) approx.

 

 

Flat (CS-2)

    A flat ampoule can be made in diameters from 30 mm (1.2 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch). Thickness of the ampoule is related to the diameter, but the most frequently used thickness is in the range of 15 mm (0.6 inch) to 30 mm (1.2 inch).

    Depicted model is 60 mm (2.4 inch) in diameter and 15 mm (0.6 inch) in thickness, overall height is 80 mm (3.1 inch) approx.

 

 

Drop shaped (CS-3)

    This ampoule is in the shape of a drop and can be made in diameters from  30 mm (1.2 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch). Height of the ampoule is derived from diameter and can be realized up to 300 mm (11.8 inch) or higher.

    Depicted model is 60 mm (2.4 inch) in diameter and 90 mm (3.5 inch) in height, overall height is 100 - 110 mm (3.9 - 4.3 inch) approx.

 

 

Egg shaped (CS-4)

    This ampoule is in the shape of an egg and can be made in diameters from  30 mm (1.2 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch). The height of the ampoule is designed to form a balanced egg shape, e.g. ampoule with diameter 80 mm (3.1 inch) is 120 - 130 mm (4.7 - 5.1 inch) in height.

    Depicted model is 50 mm (2 inch) in diameter and 70 mm (2.8 inch) in height, overall height is 90 mm (3.5 inch) approx.

 

 

Angular (CS-5)

    An angular ampoule has size of ground plan 42 x 42 mm (1.7 x 1.7 inch). Height of the ampoule can be from 30 mm (1.2 inch) to 200 mm (7.9 inch) or more, if requested.

    Depicted model has size of ground plan 42 x 42 mm (1.7 x 1.7 inch) and height of the ampoule 60 mm (2.4 inch). Overall height is then 80 mm (3.1 inch) approx.

 

 

Horizontal cylindrical (CS-6)

    A horizontal ampoule can be made in diameters from 30 mm (1.2 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch). The width of the ampoule is designed in proportion to the diameter to form a balanced Stormglass.  The small globe on the top has a diameter around 20 mm (0.8 inch).

    Depicted model has horizontal ampoule 40 mm (1.6 inch) in diameter and width of the ampoule is 80 mm (3.1 inch). The small globe on the top is 20 mm (0.8 inch) in diameter. Overall height of the Stormglass is 90 - 100 mm (3.5 - 3.9 inch) approx.

 

Cylindrical (CS-7)

    The cylindrical ampoule can be made in the following sizes: diameters from 10 mm (0.4 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch), heights from 50 mm to 1000 mm (2 inch to 39.4 inch). The pedestal is designed according to the height to ensure sufficient stability of the Stormglass.

    Depicted model has diameter 30 mm (1.2 inch) and height of the ampoule 140 mm (5.5 inch), overall height is 160 mm (6.3 inch) approx.

 

 

Flat with tubular pedestal (CS-8)

    This type of Stormglass has flat ampoule with ensured stability from the  tubular cross mounted pedestal. This design is called "Art Deco". Flat ampoule can be made in various sizes in diameter, from 30 mm (1.2 inch) to 100 mm (3.9 inch). The size of the tubular pedestal is then designed according the size of flat body.

    Depicted Stormglass has diameter 80 mm (3.1 inch) and length of the tubular pedestal is 40 mm (1.6 inch). The overall height is 90 mm (3.5 inch) approx.

 
 

Combined Stormglasses of series CS-AP

    In this section, more sophisticated allglass models are depicted. This type of Stormglass is called "Apparatus", and is formed by two various ampoules at least, whereby the ampoules are either internally connected with one another or are separate.  You can watch different crystal growths in individual ampoules of these Stormglasses.
    The sizes of individual parts can be rearranged on request.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-1

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of two ampoules, flat and spherical. Flat ampoule on the left is connected with spherical ampoule. Stability is ensured by the tubular cross mounted pedestal under the spherical ampoule on the right.


    Depicted Stormglass has flat ampoule 80 mm (3.1 inch) in diameter and spherical ampoule 50 mm (2.0 inch) in diameter, approx.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-2

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of two ampoules, spherical and cylindrical. The spherical ampoule on the left is connected by an open tube to the cylindrical ampoule. The pedestal is situated centrally.

    Depicted Stormglass has spherical ampoule 40 mm (1.6 inch). Cylindrical ampoule is 22 mm (0.9 inch) in diameter and 90 mm (3.5 inch) in height. Overall height is 150 mm (5.9 inch) approx.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-3

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of three ampoules, cylindrical, flat and spherical. The cylindrical ampoule on the left is connected to the flat ampoule in the middle and with spherical ampoule on the right. The pedestal is situated centrally.

    The depicted Stormglass has a cylindrical ampoule 22 mm (0.9 inch) in diameter and 90 mm (3.5 inch) in height. The central flat ampoule is 60 mm (2.4 inch) in diameter, and the connected spherical ampoule on the right is 40 mm (1.6 inch) in diameter. The central wine-glass style pedestal has a base diameter of 60 mm. Overall height is 150 mm (5.9 inch) approx.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-4

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of two ampoules, spherical and cylindrical. The spherical ampoule is placed above the cylindrical ampoule.

    Depicted model has spherical ampoule 40 mm (1.6 inch)  in diameter and cylindrical ampoule with diameter 28 mm (1.1 inch) and 80 mm in height. Overall height is 140 mm (5.5 inch) approx.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-5

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of three types of ampoules, spherical, cylindrical and flat. On the left side, the flat ampoule is connected by means of system of three small spherical ampoules. On the right side, the spherical ampoule is connected by spiral to the cylindrical ampoule in the middle. On the top of the Stormglass, there is small spherical ampoule with seal. The pedestal is situated in the centre of the cylindrical ampoule.

    The depicted stormglass has spherical ampoule with diameter 50 mm (2.0 inch) on the right, connected to cylindrical central cylindrical vessel with diameter of 30 mm (1.2 inch) and height 180 mm (7.1 inch). The flat ampoule on the left has diameter 50 mm (2.0 inch) with system of three small ampoules below - each 30 mm (1.2 inch) in diameter. The central wine-glass style pedestal has a base diameter of 80 mm. Overall height is 230 mm (9.1 inch) approx.

 

 

Apparatus CS-AP-6

    This type of Stormglass represents a combination of two ampoule types, spherical and cylindrical. Here we have an upper and lower spherical ampoule, (on right and left respectively), each inter-connected to the central cylindrical ampoule, which has nicely proportioned wide-base wine-glass style pedestal, for maximum stability.

Approx. dimensions of depicted Stormglass are: Spherical ampoules on left and right 4 cm (2.0 inch) in diameter. Cylindrical central ampoule diameter 2.8 cm (1.1 inch), height 8 cm (3.1 inch). The central wine-glass style pedestal has a base diameter of 50 mm. Overall height 12 cm (4.7 inch) approx.
