Pop Art Terrariums by Thyrza Segal

Here's a great Q and A at gotcraft.com with Thyrza Segal of Plantscapes- maker of very special terrariums and planters. If you are not familiar with her flair for the bizarre I encourage you to go check out her site.

What do you make?
I make pop art terrariums, succulent planters and tillandsia sculptures from thrift store glassware and ceramics. The planters include hand made sculptures to make the terrariums into miniature alien pastoral scenes. I call them "organic dioramas".

What or who inspires you?
I was originally inspired by the sophisticated work of agricultural artist Paula Hayes, but have not been able to refrain from adding a big dollop of kitsch to my work.
