What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

The Glass Oasis



Neile Cooper

A friend posted about this place, and it’s been following me around (in my head) ever since. This stunning piece is part of a cabin hand-crafted by stained glass and jewelry artist Neile Cooper. She wanted someplace to work that inspired her and kept her connected to the nature her art typically reflects. Somehow, she came up with this genius idea, and made it a reality on a little spot of land behind her house in Mohawk, New Jersey. From the snails and flowers near the floor to the creatures of the air up near (and in) the room, the 8′ x 12′ cabin is entirely covered in Cooper’s stained glass creatures.

“It is made almost entirely of reclaimed materials. Rafter beams from some fallen trees, lumber from a neighbor’s storm-damaged porch, and many, many old window frames.”

Cooper also has an enchanting Etsy shop where while you can’t buy a cabin, you can get some pricey-but-exceptional stained glass jewelry and decor pieces. Everything this woman does, she does in ways I’ve never seen before!

You can follow Cooper on Instagram, Etsy, and Facebook.

  4. Now that is the sun-room to have! I love how she has recycled/re-purposed old things! I sometimes wish I were free-spirited enough to not care about symmetry & things matching. Aw sheesh, I just wish I were more creative and able to envision some old thing in a radical fresh way! The snow & night scenes are the best!

  8. Magnificent! You know I love stained glass so even a single piece of this would be a hit with me but for it to make an entire space is just magical. I imagine sitting inside must feel like being nestled inside a box of jewels or boilings (candy).
