Geometric TERRARIUM. Handmade stained glass

Planters are wonderful, magical environments. Decorative, attractive, and easy to care for, just plant and forget. Because terrariums recycle their moisture, they need very little attention.

The spindle terrarium is a simple and elegant piece of stained glass thought as a planter.

Work perfectly with succulent plants, or, my favourite, with air plants. For those you won’t need anything: just the plant (easily available at any plant shop, or online)

This piece of geometry is built using the copper foil technique.

Every piece is cut on 2mm float glass. Once ground, cleaned and dried, it’s ready to be copper foiled.

After that, it’s carefully soldered. The finish I use is a black patina, which enhances the contrast of the natural clear light and the drawing lines of the blackened solder. Then it’s cleaned, waxed and polished to appear in front of you ready to be enjoyed.

I make every piece to order. So, any alteration in colour or shape can be done. Use the comments box at checkout to notify David of your preferences.

The SPINDLE Terrarium is available in Small (19 x 9 x 9 cm, 200 gr.) and Large (32 x 18 x 18 cm, 800 gr.)
