Hall House Terrarium

Hall House Terrarium - Artisan's Bench

Lead Head Glass Collection

Lead Head Glass terrariums are handcrafted out of reclaimed glass and wood from deconstructed homes in Detroit.

The Hall house terrarium features a box gable roof and a repeating geometric line design.  The Hall house is named for Dr. George Rogers Hall, a horticulture pioneer. Hall filled Wardian cases with Japanese plants, and they set sail from the newly opened Yokohama whaling port. These terrariums protected the flora from the salt air allowing them to survive the long ocean voyage. Dr. Hall's trip was the first time that shipments of Japanese plants came directly to America. Notable specimens included Japanese Maple, Crab Apple, Magnolia, Wisteria, and Hinoki Cypress, slow growing forms of which are frequently trained as bonsai.
