We've all said "Hmmm...let me think about it".
The conception of an idea is a process that can require many hours and sometimes days of "incubation" until it is finally ready for us to declare "I'VE GOT IT!!".
This unique work represents the peaceful hours that are required to develop an idea, and a reminder that a quiet mind is a creative mind.

The image of the light bulb has been a long standing icon for an "idea". This unique piece is another tribute to a simple household item that has been with us for many generations. Inspired by the same spirit as Professor Alexander's Botanical Vasculum, Conception is a visually striking piece from any angle and is sure to start many conversations.

The base, constructed of piano-finished rosewood and accented with metallic highlights, supports the elegant copper root system that seemingly feeds life to this one-of-a-kind moss terrarium.
This creation also features unique light effects. With a flick of a switch, one of the small rocks in the landscape mysteriously glows - evidence of an idea about to hatch.

Featuring a 150 watt bulb, the entire piece measures 5" wide x 9" tall. Battery operated so will light up anywhere. Flat cell battery is included.

These terrariums come to you PRE-ASSEMBLED and are packed with care and will ship via USPS Priority Mail to most* locations unless requested otherwise. My packaging is designed to avoid shifting of the terrarium's contents. I will also include a small gardening tool since your terrarium may need a little tweaking after it’s been unpacked.

Your terrarium will need no maintenance since I use only preserved moss.

PLEASE NOTE - The estimated time to create your terrarium is noted in the shipping details below. I will start making yours as soon you place your order and will try to have it shipped within the time frame indicated. Also, your finished piece will have minor dissimilarities from the one pictured, but will be very close.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING PRICES are based on Priority Mail International costs, the most affordable option that provides tracking and indemnity coverage.
