Stained Glass Cabin

A miniature house made from glass shows off expert construction and dazzling motifs seemingly ripped from Alice In Wonderland. Covered with stained glass, the house sits on a property in Mohawk, New Jersey. Neile Cooper, a long-time stained-glass artist and jeweler, considers the Glass Cabin her most ambitious work to date. The sharp right angles of the house juxtapose with the swiveling oversized leaves and the curving wingspan of butterflies, accentuating the fantasy house. “The Glass Cabin is my dream project, my creative sanctuary in my yard in a lovely lakeside town,” the artist explains.

“It is made almost entirely of reclaimed materials. Rafter beams from some fallen trees, lumber from a neighbor’s storm-damaged porch, and many, many old window frames. The cabin’s front-facing wall measures 8-feet by 12-feet. The cabin is small but the views from within are spectacular and kaleidoscopic,” explains Cooper. Indeed.

Cooper explores many of these same motifs in her popular jewelry designs. You can see more photos of Glass Cabin on Instagram. (via This Isn’t Happiness)
