Snow globes may be cheesy mementos of the eighties, but there’s something about seeing a complete little world enclosed in a little bubble that elevates it beyond mere kitsch.

But the sense of child-like wonder their intricate construction evokes is still there, made even stronger by the otherworldly concepts the artists are portraying.
