For my final project I want to focus on the dynamics of plants and containing that within something that is normally conceived as stagnant. To accomplish this I am creating a snow globe terrarium. An example of a normal terrarium is pictured below:
I want to achieve a fairy tale aesthetic on the interior of the terrarium. I plan to do this by picking plants that look like miniature trees. I also plan on doing this by buying miniature garden figures of fairies, unicorns, or something similar. I hope for it to feel as though someone is transported into another realm when they look into my terrarium. This aesthetic is illustrated in the image shown below.
The other aesthetic I plan to achieve with my final project is a nature/log cabin aesthetic. I plan to make the base of the terrarium out of wood or to make it look like it’s made of wood. I want the final product to almost feel like someone has taken it right out of a forest. I plan to accomplish this with wood paneling up the side of the base, just like a log cabin. This part will probably be the most difficult part of the project and I foresee a lot of setbacks. One such setback I expect with this part is the ability of the wood to retain water/not leak and to hold soil. I am also unsure how to make the wood into a cylinder shape.
