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

In a Shoebox



Emily Brock

When I saw the miniature rooms by New Mexico artist Emily Brock, I was amazed. But when I discovered that her work is all executed in glass, I was absolutely floored. Using a combination of techniques including fusing, slumping, casting, and lampworking, she makes beautiful miniature rooms that make me want to be tiny.

Brock’s rooms are all beautifully designed, and I think if she ever decides to give up glasswork, she could have a great career as an interior designer! Even her rooms’ clutter is appealing. And I’m especially fascinated by her diners. They’re fantastically believable, featuring scores of tiny, perfect details.

You can view all of Brock’s incredible work on her website.

  6. You really do dig up some great things. These are lovely. I particularly like the second one, with the blue chair and the books. So very quiet, cool, and comforting. Thank you.

  7. I think Brock is the most creative glass artist that I have ever seen. Her techniques are flawless. The designs of each room, minute details, are spectacular. It humbles me with my own work!

  10. I’m truly flabbergasted! Just remarkable! How the heck does she do it?! I wonder if she wears those ultra-strong magnifying glasses like surgeons wear.
