If you love terrariums as much as we do, this is going to rock your world: Brooklyn-based Twig Terrariums has just announced that they will be selling a photographic collection of their finest miniature green gardens. Called Tiny World Terrariums, this 120-page book will feature 100 full color images of their unique terrarium designs along with a step-by-step guide to creating tiny themed worlds that even the least green-thumbed person will be able to make and maintain. Twig is celebrating the book's release with a special party at their Gowanus studios on April 13th -- click through our gallery for a quick glimpse of their work and stay tuned for our forthcoming review.
Michelle Inciarrano and Katy Maslow don’t just create any old terrariums, although these are challenging enough. Instead, they apply a little sense of humor and mischief to their miniature worlds. Examples of work included in the book are a desert oases with camels, a mad scientist lab inside a vintage beaker, and a beach side scene with sea glass and driftwood. In addition to photographs by Robert Wright, Katy and Michelle have included detailed instructions from how to choose a glass vessel to how to cultivate different miniature plants including moss and succulents.
The book will go on sale on May 1, 2012 and will cost $19,95 — you can preorder it here. While you’re waiting, check out their website and stay tuned for a special Twig DIY workshop, which the creative duo run out of their Brooklyn studio. We can’t wait to get our hands on what promises to be a very inspiring book so that we can start creating our own mini, green fantasy worlds!
Twig is celebrating the book’s release with a party at their Gowanus studios on April 13th from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. You can find all the details here.
