sea creature terrarium figurinesby Hadley Sedgwick
- the story
A Whole Blue World
Discover a miniature Atlantis inside your very own home by arranging Hadley Sedgwick's aquatic trios inside your desktop terrarium. Greatly influenced by her childhood dollhouse and all the characters that dwelled within it, the artist translates her adoration for all things miniature in her hand-sculpted ceramic sets. Choose either a beautiful mermaid with a shell, crab, and fish, or mighty Poseidon with a fish, starfish, and turtle to add a splash of deep-sea whimsy to terrariums, as well as potted plants and windowsill herb gardens. Plus, since these pieces are made of high-fired ceramic, either set will be right at home in your terrarium's humid environment. Handmade on Tybee Island, Georgia.
When you add these charming oceanic characters to this Sedum Terrarium Bottle you'll give the lush mosses inside the appearance of a coral reef!

- the maker
A graduate from the Herron School of Art, Hadley Sedgwick currently works in ceramics, bringing sculpture to outdoor and garden settings. Art retailers across the country find demand for her spontaneity, taste and playful expression. Hadley lives on Tybee Island, Ga. with her kiln, husband and two dogs.
"These pieces are me--they are expressions of who I am," Hadley said. "These small animals have my own naivete, innocence and spontaneity. Further beneath the surface, they all bear wounds and scars, permanent lines rendered awkwardly across their faces and bodies. Yet, against this backdrop an inner beauty shines through. Glossy, shimmering, bright colors, and cute, childlike expressions suggest true personal transformation."
