In particular I love this shop for all the wonderful, creative, terrariums it sells. You can even buy DIY kits to make your own. Revisiting this shop inspired today's post regarding Terrarium as art. To be honest, I have this uncanny ability to kill any plant I have, including succulents and air plants - the two types of plants that are very hard to kill. What can I say, it's a gift. But that doesn't stop me from looking at terrariums and appreciating the work that goes into creating a beautiful tiny landscape.
Artist Kim Holleman uses found objects and trash to create terrarium sculptures. Her pieces express her views on our current environmental state and our possible future. There is a colorful beauty to her 'sculptures' but at the same time a point to be made.
My favorite type of Terrarium art is where there is a miniature world happening.
Some of the best "miniature" terrarium worlds I have seen is at Twig Terrariums. They sell DIY kits, but also imaginative ready-made terrariums.
Artist Paula Hayes creates these gorgeous biospheres highlighting the beauty of nature. Her work has been displayed in galleries like MoMA.
Terrariums are like zen gardens - beautiful and relaxing. Try your hand at one and you'll be hooked.
