Paula Hayes

New York-based landscape designer and artist Paula Hayes works with plant life and minerals to produce stunning terrariums as sculptures for gallery environments. Hayes’s work crafts industrial materials—such as hand-blown glass, silicone, or cast acrylic—into organic shapes that she then fills with a rich variety of plant life. These works deftly combine the intricate beauty and care required of the plant life with innovative, willfully independent sculptural forms. Paula Hayes was born 1958 in Concord, Massachusetts.
