Terrarium Description

The Ellis Trap's namesake is John Ellis, a naturalist and member of the Royal Society of London. Although Dr. Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward is credited with the invention of the modern terrarium, John Ellis discussed the use of terrariums in his book 60 years earlier. Don't fret, he went on to discover the Venus Fly Trap. This design features a classic line design and a pitched top.

5"W x 5"L x 11"H

All terrariums include a fitted plant liner.

Handcrafted Quality

LeadHead terrariums are designed and handmade in our small Michigan studio using traditional stained-glass techniques. Each piece is meticulously crafted and made to last. We also produce the bases in our woodshop. We are a small studio with two stained glass artisans that are committed to making high-quality stained glass for the modern home.

Create a Miniature Ecosystem

For both seasoned gardeners and those new to the world of plants, terrariums offer a simple, low-maintenance method to incorporate natural beauty into your indoor space. These self-contained ecosystems act as miniature greenhouses and need less frequent watering compared to typical houseplants.

Timeless Style

The inception of terrariums dates back to the Victorian Era, originally crafted to transport and exhibit exotic plant species from across the world. Our designs aim to honor the heritage and classic elegance of traditional terrariums while infusing them with contemporary style for today's homes.
