  • A gazing ball, also known as a yard globe, lawn ball, garden ball, gazing globe, mirror ball, or chrome ball, is a mirrored sphere typically displayed atop a conical ceramic or wrought iron stand as a lawn ornament, and is often cited as a premier example of camp or kitsch. Its size ranges from 2 to 22 inches in diameter, with the most popular gazing ball being about 12 inches (33 cm). Gazing balls were traditionally glass but can now be stainless steel, ceramic, or stained glass.

    Gazing balls originated in 13th century Venice workshops where they were hand-blown by skilled Italian craftsmen.
