  • Concrete Orbs by Gary Brooks, Assorted Colours and Sizes, $25-$89

These beautiful concrete orbs are some of our most popular works. Their gold and silver leaf lining gives them their luminous quality even under low lighting, and they are on trend with current home décor fashions. We love the mini orbs for holding little bits and pieces of jewellery.
