“We are all both insignificant, and epic at the same time.” Lisa Swerling’s Glass Cathedrals are a series of thousands of miniature worlds in boxes exploring this duality, expressing big ideas with tiny figures not much bigger than a pea.

Many Glass Cathedrals are uniquely customised to capture events, places, people, passions, memories…
Taking orders now for delivery worldwide from October 2022 (express commissions also possible).

Here’s a summary of how the art is organised on the website:  
Portfolio – “Open edition” designs, made to order. Customisation of designs can be an option.
Themes – Examples of unique commissions, where the figures are made to resemble real people, in the scene of your choice.
Collections – Self-initiated collections of work, themes include cinema, books, circus, Frida Kahlo and politics.

And let’s not forget what’s happening Outside the Box – how Glass Cathedrals fit into the wider world.
