About Us

Handmade glass terrarium being soldered

Our Story

LeadHead Glass terrariums are handcrafted out of reclaimed glass from deconstructed homes. Our business was established in 2013 in Detroit, MI to design and construct high quality modern terrariums with recycled materials. We model our terrariums after 19th century Wardian Cases, with a contemporary design. The Wardian case was originally used to transport exotic plants around the globe, and is an ideal environment to raise your own miniature garden in.  

Every LeadHead Glass Terrarium is handmade using traditional stained glass techniques, and is as unique as the glass it comes from. Our commitment is to recycle and reuse our local resources by creating fine hand-crafted terrariums from reclaimed glass.
