Bevel House Terrarium Designs


My leaded art glass terrarium designs.

All having a Victorian "feel". The larger terrarium designs, with an interior volumes of 1.5 to almost 2 sq ft, are true Wardian Case for the serious indoor plant grower. I also offer an option of a lead free terrarium, in my Small Garden design. Details about each design are contained in the fact sheet that you can download via the links provided. Each is a one page PDF file.

The Bevel House design is an art glass design influenced by the common bevels used in Victorian windows called "house bevels" due to their shape. I make this design in two heights.

The regular design, shown on the left, uses 12 house bevels and half square bevels of two sizes. This design is 18" long, 8.5" wide and 15" high. The lower trim is a green and white opal glass and is 3" high.

The taller design, shown on the right, uses 24 house bevels and square and half square bevels. This design is 18" long, 8.5" wide and 22" high. The photo of the taller layout just shows the terrarium base. The lower trim is a brown and white opal glass and is 4" high.

In both designs the roof structure, made from clear glass, lifts off for complete access to your garden and is of the same size. This also allows removal of the interior tray that contains the growing area.

The two photos below show the three components of this terrarium design on the right, and a side view of the shorter design on the left.

So for my Bevel House Terrarium there are a number of possible layouts available:
