Fantastic Star Wars-Themed Worlds Inside Glass Terrariums

These Star Wars terrariums by artist Tony Larson are so spectacular!! What better way to celebrate one of America’s all-time epic movie trilogies than with these small, glass bulbs that feature a few lovable characters from the films. According to Larson, you can relive some of your favorite scenes by just having one of these worlds sitting on your shelf.

The Minnesota-based artist’s Etsy shop features all kinds of miniature, handmade delights which he says will “bring a little wonder to any room.” To create these novelties, Larson placed adorable plastic figurines, including Yoda, R2-D2, and an Ewok, into glass containers and surrounded them with hand-carved terrain and custom, fake landscapes which require very minimal maintenance. The clear glass balls range in size from 5 to 7 inches in diameter and the scenes can either sit upright on a table or can hang, suspended, with a small wire connected to the top hook.

In the past, we have seen many Star Wars-artist enthusiasts who have found various ways to honor the iconic movies. From LEGO sculptures to fun Star Wars-themed family decals to Star Wars Identities posters, if you have a similar affinity for the George Lucas creations, you will definitely enjoy all of these works.
