Main Project Inspirations

For my project I plan on creating a terrarium in the shape of a snow globe. The snow globe shape, is obviously inspired by snow globes. The idea of a snow globe shape came to me during class while I was sketching. I already had the idea of a terrarium, I was just unsure of the exact shape I wanted it to be in. An example of a snow globe shape I am interested in is shown below. The image and snow globe was made by Paulina Ciepal and can be found at

The main aspect of the project, a terrarium, was inspired by my childhood. As a kid I didn’t have a lot of pets and always begged my mom to get me one. When she said no, I used to go in my backyard and collect plants, and bugs, and put them in glasses, fish tanks, etc.. I wanted to upscale my childhood pets into a usable terrarium for the present day. In the terrarium I plan to plant flowers, basil, mint, and maybe even some bugs!!

  • The inspiration behind this is very interesting. I love the idea though. The soothing aesthetic of a natural, flowing terrarium is v yr pleasant and calming to look at. Do you plan on upcycling a snow globe or do you plan on creating a “snow globe” for the final product?
