Sharing my passion for plants, artful terrariums are created in vintage vessels. The planters are wooden and hand-painted. They would be sourced from vintage markets and given a new lease of life. I sand down and paint each one with a walnut-hued stain. All the plants are grown by me, which include succulents of various shapes and shades.
I spend many an hour in my garden, creating rockeries and arrangements on a large and small scale. Some of my favourites include echeverias and haworthias. Each variety has it's own features, which combined creates a beautiful effect.
Using carefully placed stones and decorative elements, the miniature green entities are a visual focal point. I create rock features from surplus bricks which would have been intended for the landfill. The impact on the environment is considered with each step, helping reuse natural elements. Each planter is therefore unique and a talking point in your home.
There’s the ecological aspect of vessels having a new lease of life, as well as the air-purifying growth within. Gardens tend to be considered a luxury today with high-cost rental living, so having a piece of Eden to tend to creates a moment of zen.
