Glass domes by Lulu Mosquito

A still life, also called nature morte, is a painting of an arrangement of inanimate objects, e.g. flowers, fruit, vases etc. Artists have been painting still lifes since the late Middle Ages. The arrangements often tell a little story, and can be executed in many ways, but one of Lulu Mosquito’s absolute favourites is to place the arrangement under a glass dome. 

When something is displayed under glass, it highlights the objects. It becomes special, something that stands out from the rest – like at a museum.

 

A beautiful and harmonious still life arrangement brings things together by virtue of their colours, shapes and geometry. Aesthetically, the arrangement must be pleasing to the eye.

The beetle dome contains a beautiful unique hand-embroidered beetle of pearls and a blown glass perfume diffuser in beautiful colors. You can easily use the parts of the dome elsewhere, and placing the beetle under a light will diffuse in many different colors.Nicely displayed on a beige-gray lacquer tray covered with a graphic plexiglass box

Choose carefully what you want to highlight under your glass dome. For instance, think in terms of contrasting materials with harmonious colours, or vice versa. You can easily add a humorous touch by choosing beautiful kitsch items or your children’s crooked clay figures from kindergarten. 

This beautiful glass box with oak frames contains a fine collection of ceramic vases. Three of the vases are unique and handmade at Lulu Mosquito’s own clay workshop. The material is clay, but the shapes, size ratios and the graphic black and white colours make the collection interesting and decorative in a muted and stylish way.

Lulu Mosquito often use Domes and Still Life when decorating both private villas and public places.
