The Paula Hayes website is insane! And way too hard to navigate! These terrariums are gorgeous; it anyone has any thoughts on how to make one (which plants would be best, etc), please post!
Funny, I just saw one of his terrariums at Salon 94 (btw, check out the Marilyn Minter show now up...) and I was quite taken with it. Little self-contained worlds. http://www.salon94.com/
the website is beautiful... i agree with above/below, may not be super user friendly (it is easy once you figure it out, a little trial and error)....but amazing still....i love the melting-looking plant pots....delicious!
Whoo....pretty...Do these plants need to be watered? Looks like it'd be hard to feed a water jug through such a small opening....or do they just absorbed the moisture in the air?Fascinating!
These are beautiful, a wee bit pricey though.There are plenty of teardrop vases one could use. Place one on it's side and viola! You can use little tools (chopsticks, bamboo skewers, to plant your items inside the vase). To keep it from rolling around, your could use some clear goo. You can find miniature plants online. I found one sight with some cool plants: http://www.violetbarn.com/miniature_houseplants.htmI would love to create a more exquisite minimal terrarium with a seamless glass cube containing a "hill" of mounded moss, miniature ferns and acorns... if I could find a seamless glass cube. The only aquariums and terrariums I have found have unsightly silicone used to adhere the sides. I have looked all over the web for a seamless cube aquarium, terrarium or even an oversized vase.If anyone has any suggestions on where I can find a seamless glass cube, I would greatly appreciate it!Thank you!!Jeffp.s. If anyone wants to create a terrarium make certain to put thin layer of fine charcoal below the soil to absorb bacteria.
does anyone know of places in the greater new york area that sells those funny-shaped glass containers and terrarium plants?thanks!
sorry! i've been all over the city and i know i've seen them. i've also seen them online. look on sites like cb2, west elm, 2modern, etc.http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=583&f=2906 ??? not quite as cool as hayes, but keep surfing.if i see anything around the city, i'll post it here. if i don't see anything within the next month, i'll leave a comment that i haven't seen anything yet.
i make terrariums too! please visit if you would like to see my slipper orchid terrarium. find it here design♔dna under "a little do it yourself"
I think she has a glassblowing friend or is blowing them herself. I've also seen similar objects (in color; often opaque [boo]) at Swallow on Smith Street in Carroll Gardens.These look like a lot of the "beginner's objects" I made while taking glassblowing classes at URBANglass in Brooklyn. They were supposed to look like tumblers and bottles, but... Anyway, now I know what to do with all those pieces from my first classes that I couldn't give away as well as hope for those "perfect tumblers" that aren't always perfect.ghostTIGERnycBTW: For those who REALLY want to DIY: UG often has two-day workshops for those who want to try glassblowing, but don't want to commit to a full-semester class.
