More Miniatures

9 Dec

A little while ago I mentioned my love for all things miniature, and I thought I’d write about another artist along that line that makes me very happy. I’m pretty sure Slinkachu’s Little People won’t be new to you. I discovered them a year or two ago and fell instantly in love. I was talking to someone about this miniature-love and they said they didn’t really get it. I think it has something to do with fantasy worlds, imagination, and focusing really hard on a small detail in a time when such an act is almost unheard of. It reminds of me of being little, looking really closely at something on the sidewalk or in the garden, and imagining how a tiny person might navigate that terrain. Was I the only nerdy little kid who did this?  

Jon commented on my previous post with a few links on dollhouses and little things, and I found the works of Stéphanie Kilgast to be especially drool-worthy. Seriously, how does she makes these? Each setting is the size of a match, sometimes less. Click the thumbnails below to see how scary-detailed they are.

    Nothing nerdy at all about using your imagination and pretending that you are small. I projected myself and imagined I was part of my toys when I was a child countless times. I guess I never grew out of it, because now I own my own miniatures website. Odin Art

    I really should post some of her stuff up on my blog at some point… you might be interested too. http://www.fluffybricks.blogspot.com

    It annoys me when people ‘don’t get’ my love for miniatures as well. I get a lot of ‘wow, you’ve got too much time on your hands!’ comments. 😦

    Brad: the dollhouse furniture is great! They remind me of a dollhouse my cousin had when we were little, I was really jealous.

    Living: It looks like I’ll be checking your blog out very often! I can tell people make these miniature items for enjoyment, but are they typically sold? My favourites on your blog are the felted dog and the tiny knitted dolls.
