Green Wall Art Blog – Moss and much more!
A blog about moss wall art/green wall art, vertical gardens, home decor and living well.

Nature itself can be so inspiring, yet so broad a word – the drizzling spring rain against a backdrop of evergreens may inspire one, but the soft scuttle of an insect across grainy sand might inspire another. Nature itself can be found in a canyon, untouched by man yet inhabited by many; or by the […]
The warm blue hues are the first to capture the eye. Soft cotton clouds drift slowly through the sky, moving gently with the breeze. The sun is only just emerging, casting a shadow upon the valley below, the dark green of nourished trees slightly peeking out from the darkness. The yellow haze is still hidden, […]

Miyajima Trip: The Beauty of Nature in Japan PT 1 My name is Emily and I’m an intern at WabiMoss. My mother is Japanese, and she now lives in Japan with my father and two sisters. Just recently, I returned to California after visiting them for two weeks. We had a wonderful time, both at […]
Moss art as an art form may not be traditional, but then again neither are we. For many of us, the appreciation of nature is innate – not something learned or taught, but rather organic and instinctive. Joy may be found when strolling through the park or when visiting a bountiful garden. It takes […]

That’s the best part!’ The burned wood frame echoes the drift wood inside, the textures make you want to touch it, and the colors are so vivid and varied […]
Here are two fine moss wall art pieces that we are shipping today. Two lucky people are getting some fine artwork!
A few fun facts on the uses of moss by indigenous peoples, as well as survival uses of moss. One use that will probably remain forever among field personnel is that of toilet “paper” (Open-Air). Sphagnum is particularly suitable, both for its absorptive properties and its antibiotic properties. Since it has antibiotic properties, and is […]
