Here at VinylOctopus we love an intricate piece of work and there no exception with today’s artist, Dutch born Rosa de Jong. Much like a ship in a bottle she handcrafts beautiful, delicate minute worlds inside long slender glass tubes. These tiny land masses supporting various elements such as tress, buildings and tents, whilst they appear to suspend in mid-air; lending a sense of tranquility to her work.
Titled ‘Micro Matters’ her pieces actually require zero planning, with De Jong stating that she often wings it and simply places this where they look right. Usually taking on average a day to complete, she uses various elements such as sticks and bark bought into the house by her cat.
Overall her work aims to look at what we call home and how it compares to the entire world, reflecting on how small and comfortable our own tiny world can seem in the grand scheme of things.
