I’m Lisa Swerling, an artist making miniature worlds in boxes called Glass Cathedrals. Inspired by the power of the miniature to communicate big ideas and emotions, I’ve spent nearly twenty years making thousands of artboxes – in Cape Town, California, and now London.

Glass Cathedrals are collected and shown all over the world, from Modern Art Oxford and the sumptuous Kings Rd. Anthropologie Gallery in London, to San Francisco’s wondrous Exploratorium Science Museum and Powells Bookshop in Portland.

Whether ordering a unique custom commission or an ‘off-the-shelf’ design (available at the online shop), each Glass Cathedral is made to order, and individually titled, signed and dated.
