It turns out a ton of old windows get tossed out in Halifax. Vlad Kovalik and Jelsi Mynott took notice of all the wasted glass and then took artistic action, teaming up to create minimalistos. Using only recycled windows, their handmade, handcut and soldered with lead-free silver alloy terrariums range from prisms to teardrops to pyramids, perfect for planting cute little things in. After a year of making these beauties, minimalistos’ creations are available in stores countrywide (and are shipped internationally), but here in Halifax get your hands on them for gifting or keeping at The Flower Shop (1887 Granville Street), where they’ll be pre-planted by a green thumb other than yours.
