Ever since we saw the otherworldy terrariums by New York City–based painter, sculptor, and landscape artist Paula Hayes. we’ve been wondering how to recreate the look. Roost, the Sausalito-based home goods purveyor, comes to the rescue with a line of terrariums made from recycled glass. For a DIY tutorial on creating your own terrarium, go to Design Sponge.

Above: Made from recycled glass, each Roost Recycled Glass Bubble Terrarium is free-blown without a mold, creating giant glass bubbles that are then flattened and curved into shape. Prices start at $99 for a small (9 inches high) and go up to $165 for the extra large size (19.25 inches high); plants are not included.
