Soulful Settee

I found this settee at an estate sale...I've always been the "purist" - - the miniature needed to be perfect (scale, technique, materials...)! But I found this piece and all I could think of was how perfectly perfect it is! From the mismatched legs, to the torn and tattered fabric to the imbalanced scale. But I LOVE everything about this has such soul. I want to believe this piece made someone very very happy one day (for many days!) and it deserves to be cherished and protected and admired for all that is...and not what it isn't.

Design World of Miniatures

A Perfect Combination! Designers in the UK create their dream rooms in miniature. Working in 12"x12" boxes, the presentation is everywhere from sweet and whimsical to eclectic and abstract. The Museum of Childhood put this program together in anticipation of their upcoming tour to the US with their Small Stories collection of UK dollhouses.

Patrick Jacobs at Pierogi Gallery

Patrick Jacobs works in multiple mediums to create illusions of scale and space. His "Fly Agaric Mushroom Cluster #9" is a diorama which is just about 11x15 and viewed through a 2" window. The piece contains an enchanting assortment of floral and fauna in miniature transporting the viewer to another place and time. The artist talk more about his work in this short video. This and other works can be seen at the Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn from January 16 through February 16th, 2015.
