Much like the traditional ship-in-a-bottle, each piece is painstakingly detailed and built to perfectly fit its vessel. De Jong says she originally began making miniature metropolitan areas, yet would often tire of the larger projects and opt for creative endeavors, which provided more instant gratification. An inspired purchase of glass tubes marked the beginnings of the Micro Matter line, each piece seemingly more intricate than the last.

Each piece is completely handmade and uses mostly natural materials in its development. The stark vertical design of the sculptures seem to challenge the observer’s perception of what is right-side-up and it is difficult to look away from the detailed works. De Jong says, “Until now it hasn’t got boring. I still feel like there are more worlds to create.” Follow her marvelous work on Dribbble and Instagram.
