The Product: Bubble glass display domes
Charming, mini-display domes are a brilliant solution for showcasing treasured objects, found on your travels. The perfect miniature gallery for a collection of woodland feathers, small figurines or, as here – click to the next picture – sentimental items that jog a memory. Our daughter’s adorable first ‘shoes’! We were living in Thailand at the time. We found them at the wonderfully atmospheric ‘walking market’ (or night-market) in Thailand’s fabulous second city, Chiangmai. They’d be in a box somewhere if they weren’t displayed in this little glass bubble for everyone to ‘Ooh!’ and ‘Ahhh!’ at.
In fact, the domes themselves were hand-crafted in Thailand by our favourite Bangkok potter Karin Phisolyabut. Click on the link to read all about his magical Yarnnakarn workshop/studio deep in the ‘sois’ or streets of that – quiet for now – but usually crazy, wonderful, bustling and beeping city.
These display domes work well as part of a still-life arrangement of decorative objects. For instance, on built-in or wall-hung shelves or on a sturdy sideboard. The glass adds sparkle and therefore textural contrast – a key element of any successful display. The glass domes, available in large or small sizes, sit on elegant, white, glazed ceramic bases.
