Hi, I’m Katy Maslow. Here I am in a circle.
Mossoleum (moss·uh·lee·uhm) is a combination of my love of dioramas and miniatures, oddities and junqué, and crafting small worlds. Created and curated in my Brooklyn apartment, this cabinet of curiosities is a labor of love, crafting a mysterious little shop from my own collection – Victorian cloches, ships-in-bottles, interesting natural elements, and my own unique creations. What can you expect from Mossoleum? Miniature panoramas, dioramas, junqué, terrariums & deadariums, oddities, mysteries & hopefully endlessly interesting objects that I come up with as I pursue my Mossoleum hopes and dreams.
Who am I? I’m a Brooklyn, New York based innovator and the creator of Twig Terrariums, an award-winning plant-based company that was established in 2010. Building on my lifelong fascination with plants and miniatures, I developed a unique brand in the retail landscape, resulting in significant press, sales, & industry recognition. The New York Times described my early contributions as “...terrariums [that] marry the current rage for Victoriana with the growing interest in handmade crafts and all things do-it-yourself.” (Terrariums Make a Comeback)
My business achievements and artistic creations have been featured in The New York Times, Entrepreneur Magazine, Real Simple, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and more. I co-authored Tiny World Terrariums from STC Craft & Abrams Books, 2012. I was a Featured Artist at the Museum of Art & Design for their Otherworldly exhibit, as well as Guest Artist at the American Folk Art Museum. I have conducted workshops with New York University, The New York Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Botanic Garden Continuing Ed, New York Horticultural Society, and all around the country.
