How it works

Each Glass Cathedral is handmade to order, and titled, signed and dated. They can nestle on a shelf, or easily hang on the wall.

Kinds of Glass Cathedral

1. Custom Commissions  Capturing your moments in miniature
Prices start at $950/ £790 | Lead time 8-10 weeks |  Express orders possible.

In custom Glass Cathedrals, I capture people’s actual experiences – the tiny figures resembling real people (and animals!) on travels, in beautiful places, celebrating milestones and relationships. The process of customisation is fun and straightforward, where you email me photos and short descriptions of the people and scene you’d like to capture in a your own unique miniature world. The example below is of a wedding anniversary spent in Venice.

2. Off-the-shelf Designs Artbox treasures, loved for life

Off-the-shelf Glass Cathedrals are a collection of my favourite designs from the last 20 years. Though I make them to order (and some personalisation is often included), the turnaround is quicker than totally custom commissions. An example is Me without You, below, where you would be able to customise the hair and skin colour included in the price.

 

Lead Times
Glass Cathedrals are shipped all over the world.
Off-the-shelf designs: 2-6 weeks  | Custom commissions: 8-10 weeks

Handmade Editions
Off-the-shelf designs are open edition, with each artbox handmade on commission.
Custom commissions are one-of-a-kind.

Media
The miniature worlds are housed in white-painted wooden boxes, fronted by glass. The model-railway figurines are at times augmented with clay, paint, paper, and accessorised with ephemera like specks of glitter and tiny sequins.
The interiors are often finely layered with glitter.

Care
Display away from direct sunlight and humid conditions.
Glass can be removed and cleaned with regular glass cleaner.
