it is custom terrarium city up in my studio right now. busy busy busy making mini portraits of folks, building tiny landscapes and scouting out for new and old vessels. tomorrow morning a much needed a trip to the flower mart.
with that said, i have some photos to share with you of a few of the recent customs and newbie terrariums i have made. i am working on updating my shop, but be patient please, i have other jobs pulling me here and there too! i promise to come through! in the meantime some visual peeks..
i am especially excited about this batch of vintage brass and glass collection. i feel there is a certain magic and whimsy that is really starting to take presence. its funny how you make something over and over again, but with each experience you learn how to make physically possible a real version of what you imagined - make sense?
(the one above with the naked dude bringing the feather to the lady sitting pretty on the crystal quartz rock, well that one is titled "the grand gesture". it was a result of a big fight with the lover. i explained to him ladies need grand gestures, thus this terrarium. watch and learn boys! its now his favorite scene.)
these little treats will soon be available on the shop. no mini people, but gorgeous materials. vintage bottles from the mojave desert and elsewhere filled with treasure like quartz, agate, drift wood, feathers, vintage marbles and more - you have to shake the bottle to find the goods inside. and a buddha nut housing a gorgeous large, pink tipped tillandsia (air plant).
recent custom orders... a lady in her landscape, just taking it all in...
this was for a rocker and an artist who just got married. i added all kinds of cool surprises in this one, like crystals and mushrooms...
a new interview with a gardener coming soon! its a good one! we got edibles to see!
