Seed the Light

Even if you don't possess the green thumb necessary for an indoor garden, you can still bring the tranquility and beauty of nature into your home or office with artist Melissa Moore's illuminated ecosystem. A minimal, contemporary bell jar frames and protects the fragile mosses and spindly greens inside, which stay ever-verdant in a state of pause. When aglow with the light of the elongated, unobstructed bulb, this miniature environment is brought to life, as if in displayed in a vintage exhibition of natural curiosities. Assembled by hand in Baltimore, Maryland.

Comments about TERRA TABLE LAMP:

This is a beautiful lamp; however, I had to get a replacement (the first arrived broken), and found that the second one was slightly less impressive, as it contained the tiniest air plant I've ever seen (the first had been much more reasonably proportioned). Otherwise, it's bright, attractive, and very much as pictured. My sister-in-law loved it!

Service and delivery comments:

The lamp arrived promptly but broken. Service was great about it, and only asked for pics of the broken glass (I didn't have to ship anything back). There was some confusion around whether the replacement had actually shipped--I was prematurely told that it had--but ultimately I got it just in time, and the second one was swaddled in many, many layers of bubble wrap to prevent another issue.

We love that this bright design combines a desk lamp with a little bit of nature. Did you light up when you saw the Terra Lamp?

whimsy and gree good combination

Birdy
Vote: Thumbs down!

It looks like it would get dusty and be hard to clean.

Tal
Vote: Thumbs down!

Will the greens grow any larger or just stay that size? Moss in general appears fake even when it's real, so I don't see the point in wasting electricity when you can just use the fake stuff

I want one.

The unobscured light would just get in my eyes, making it hard for me to see the plants as well as the room. Like having a flashlight pointed in my eyes.

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

Hi, Tal. Thanks for voting! The greens are preserved so they don't require any water and they won't grow. They'll continue to look as they do in our image.

WOW that's really cool!

This will need to be priced in my price range, say, $30-$45.

Great idea! And here is the good news for the designers ... back in the day, there was a company called Aerolux that made bulbs such as these in varying shapes and with different internal designs. Some were shaped to behave like flames - very beautiful. Therefore, the light itself could have several different messages (blue, pink ...). Also, you could try frosted bulbs as well as "amber" and others. Good Luck!

Looks cheap. You describe the "spindly greens" accurately. Perhaps another word would have more appeal. I am just not feelin' it. Looks more like my recycle bin on collection day.

It's beautiful but incredibly over priced! I could make one myself for 1/4 of the cost.

Ro

At first glance, I thought it looked nice... But fake plants? Ick. And too many pennies.

Pup1
Vote: Thumbs down!

Very cool idea but honestly just too expensive.

Faye
Vote: Thumbs down!

it is very nice just out of my price range for something ornamental. I am quite frugal, sometimes!

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

Hello, voters!A few people have asked for a little more info about the plants. They are real plants (they're not plastic), but they are preserved so they won't grow. They also won't dry-out and lose their green color.

Pamela

just think the light bulb in there is ugly...

Christine
Vote: Thumbs up!

This would look beautiful as a centerpiece on a dining room table. Hopefully the jar lid lifts for cleaning/refreshing!

Marcie

looks very cheap with the poor looking plants at the bottom.

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

Hi, Yvonne! We updated our website a few days ago and estimated pricing began to mysteriously appear on our voting app items after the launch. We made the decision a while back to keep prices out of our voting pages, since we're interested in feedback on the actual design of the products. The pricing is an estimate while the products are under consideration, so we don't want that to affect how someone feels about the item's functionality and beauty.

Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

P.s. We caught the problem right away and removed the estimated prices, so that's why you can't see them any more. We're sorry for any confusion.

Jennifer

I am not crazy about the greens, but I like the idea. I would purchase the lamp and put my own mosses and greens inside.
