  • the story

Urban Oasis

Convey a big message in a delightfully small package with this microcosm of natural splendor. Brooklyn artists Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow create pint-sized living sculptures inside glass terrariums, complete with miniature figurines, natural flora, colorful mosses and river stones. This snapshot of urban intrigue features a tiny graffiti artist spray painting the message "Life is Beautiful" on a white washed, abandoned wall. Housed inside a glass apothecary jar, simply mist the entire scene every two to four weeks and keep out of direct sunlight to watch it thrive. Handmade in Brooklyn.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Michelle Inciarrano & Katy Maslow

Twig Terrariums is a verdant venture, located in Brooklyn, New York, and sprung from the minds of two old friends, Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow. We specialize in creating moss terrariums and other small worlds in antique, vintage, and new glass containers, apothecary jars, science glass, kitchenware, and any odd glass objects we find on our travels.

Each Twig Terrarium contains a very special scene using miniature figurines to complete your little green landscape – from idyllic pastoral scenes with cows and horses to angry punk rockers and Central Park muggings.

Take a studio tour and see where Michelle and Katy bring their miniature nature scenes to life!
