We love the idea of re-purposing household items for gardening, and this beautiful french press terrarium serves as a great example of how effective it can be. The artist and photographer, Sidney-based artist Zik, explains that “using an unusual or common household item as opposed to a jar can instantly make a terrarium more interesting.”
Though these have been set up as artistic scenes, the idea could definitely be applied to create some real living terrarium gardens. Check out some more pieces by the same artist below:
This first example, and my personal favorite comes from Wren Bentley over at http://blog.surlatable.com/the-art-of-repurposing-or-how-to-make-a-terrarium/
She’s created a simply stunning terrarium out of an old French Press. The attention to detail and choice of colors and plants is a great balance. And I think it came out amazingly well. Please note that this photograph also belongs to the author and is not mine.
