The art of display: object terrariums by Litill

Thursday, 14 June 2012

Former florist Lauren Coleman creates the compositions inside Litill's biomorphic blown glass terrariums, which use the colour and form of slow-growing plants in displays akin to tabletop sculptures.

As detailed in our report from earlier on this year, terrariums have been a strong trend over the past two years, especially in the US. We are now seeing new variations on the plant terrarium format, where treasured keepsakes and objects are given an elevated status when carefully framed under a glass dome like works of art.
