The fantastical miniature landscape sculptures presented by Rosa de Jong integrate the natural environment perfectly. Many of her small designs exhibit a variety of small buildings and landscapes covered with glass test tubes. The Amsterdam-based designer portrays in all her creations the delicate balance of nature and man-made habitats.
Rosa’s work is complex and requires components to be put together to turn architectural scenes. Creating small houses and buildings on different grounds and inserting them into glass containers with wooden frames is by no means an easy task. It is a fine testament to her sculptural prowess.
Rosa’s small landscapes appear to float in the air in glass test tubes, providing a cross-section of the foundations of buildings and the root systems of trees and other vegetation depicted in art. This makes Rosa’s designs marvelous and stunning.
