About Erinn Basu and Anáil Mitra,
Co-Founders

Gilly's Garden was co-founded in 2014 by Erinn Basu and her mother, Anáil Mitra. Erinn lovingly refers to Anáil as "Gilly" and for years, Erinn had hoped to someday create a meandering garden and tea house in her mother’s honor and wanted to name it Gilly’s Garden.

The mother-daughter duo attended a terrarium workshop and fell in love with the miniature scale of these mystical landscapes in glass. It became apparent that they both shared a deep interest in anything created in miniature scale. Together, they adore collecting rocks, driftwood, sea glass and other natural foraged materials.

As Anáil and Erinn searched extensively for supplies and rare specimens to create ethereal landscapes, it became evident that the name “Gilly’s Garden” was destined for something else...

Every sunny sill in their home is forested with eye-catching glass gardens.

"As you watch your glass garden take shape, your senses are engaged with the musky sweet smell of soil, the feeling of sculpting soil and sand between your fingers, the sound of pebbles rattling from their jars over their freshly sculpted terrain, and the light and shadows cast by perfect placement of tiny plants within their new home. When you are fully present to the creation of a miniature landscape, the unique shape and color of each element informs your choices and the result is a beautiful piece of living art."
— Erinn
