This fascinating art mug shows the dying breath of a Sun-like star. Like a glowing pool, the Helix Nebula mesmerizes, from the radiant shockwave at the edge to the small, faint spot in the middle. That spot is a white dwarf, the old inner core of the star pulled down onto itself into a dead, white-hot ball.

This large and sturdy 15 oz white glossy ceramic mug is perfect for your morning coffee, afternoon tea, or whatever hot beverage you enjoy while midnight stargazing. The artwork is a reproduction of an original 24 x 36 inch acrylic on canvas painting created by the artist Tracey Kendall.

There's more to the story


This painted art mug is delightful to look at, hold onto, and even dream about. Many of our customers have purchased multiple mugs from the Hubble collection, giving them a veritable “cosmic art gallery” in their kitchen or office space. *Ms. Kendall’s inspiration for her painting came from the Hubble Space Telescope image of the Helix Nebula, for which credit duly goes to: NASA, ESA, C.R. O'Dell (Vanderbilt University), and M. Meixner, P. McCullough, and G. Bacon (Space Telescope Science Institute).
