“We are all both insignificant, and epic at the same time.” Lisa Swerling’s Glass Cathedrals are a series of hundreds of miniature worlds in boxes exploring this dichotomy, expressing big ideas with tiny figures not much bigger than a pea.
Many Glass Cathedrals are uniquely customized to capture events, places, people or memories, and can be shipped worldwide.
Art treasures, treasured for life.
