Glassware: Lead Head Glass Terrariums

Glassware: Lead Head Glass Terrariums photo credit: DetroitHomeMag.com We gratefully found Chad & Derek and their Lead Head Glassware through Instagram and have been creating in their creations, in the shop, the last two years. The history of terrariums dates back to the 1880s with Wardian cases. These cases were originally used to transport exotic plants around the world. LHG modeled their glassware after these cases. Lead Head makes their products out of reclaimed glass and wood from deconstructed homes in Detroit. There's an unfurling level of magic and history to their wonderful product.
