Hurricane candle shell

I have been looking for a spherical hurricane candle shell but cannot find one. The last one I bought was from Illuminations, but they stopped carrying them long ago (and sadly, they are now out of business). If you know where I can find one, please leave a comment or email me. The one I have now (pictured) is 8 inches in diameter, although I will consider smaller or larger ones.
