Paula Hayes Teardrop TerrariumA new generation of designers is re-discovering the mini-garden and the aficionados are watching it wholeheartedly. Terrariums are back now.

Artist Paula Hayes, a New York sculptor, painter and landscape designer is eying new possibilities in creative horticulture and home decor with her spectacular Teardrop Terrarium.

She has given wind to the concept of plants inside glass as portable artworks. Her creations are set in hand-blown glass.

Her delicate, hand-blown glass terrariums in organic shapes remind us of bubbles, teardrops, body parts, peanuts, and pears.

The creations demand a lot of hard work as she takes care of each for about a year until plants are established and the work is ready for sale.

Terrariums, originally invented by Nathaniel Ward, an English physician and botanist, have begun to show up online, in home furnishings catalogs, and in garden supply stores.

The eye-catching terrariums by Paula Hayes are selling like hot cakes for between $8,000 and $22,000. Via LaTimes
