Glass Cathedrals can nestle on a shelf, or easily hang on a nail or french cleat (provided) on a wall.

If you could capture a totally unique and meaningful moment in a box, what would it be?
I have been commissioned to make hundreds of custom Glass Cathedrals, where the tiny figures resemble real people (and animals!) in beautiful places, on travels, celebrating milestones and relationships. The example below is of a wedding anniversary spent in Venice.

Off-the-shelf Glass Cathedrals are a collection of ‘open edition’ designs I have made over the 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.
Glass Cathedrals are shipped all over the world.
Off-the-shelf designs: 2-6 weeks | Custom commissions: 8-10 weeks
If you need it sooner let me know, and I’ll try accommodate.
Off-the-shelf designs are open edition, with each artbox handmade on commission.
Custom commissions are one-of-a-kind.
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.
