There are some things that truly inspire. They can make you create a whole room just for them. And recently I found one in Russian social site. In one of the groups I saw a post about miniature bricks with lots of photos, and I was blown away. It’s hard to find an artisan in Russia who creates such complicated things (I’m speaking about technology and process involved) from scratch.
I loved the bricks and instantly wanted to buy them though I had no idea how I could use them, besides I’m making furniture mostly, not roomboxes (sigh). Minutes later I decided to make some sort of decoration for one of my items for Christmas Kensington Festival. I ordered 2kg of bricks.
Dmitry, an artisan who makes these bricks, was also very kind, he sent me bricks of another scale too (1/9) and half-bricks. Look how cool they are:
Lots of photos below:
Surprise, surprise! The roombox in the latest issue of Miniature Collector:
Third publication, first in US. As for me, I’m still sort of struggling with my marquetry project, I’m on Hinges stage right now, but the progress is slow due to real life things. ((
I just love pinterest! Among all those boards on antique furniture – sometimes there are real treasures. This time I found some good recommendations on books about furniture history. Books are shipped, but before this wonderful discovery I bought some really good books too.
I got some new books from Ebay last weekend. These are treasures indeed.
I don’t even know where to start, yesterday my husband brought the new issue of Miniaturas Magazine, and look who’s there! Me!
This is the process of making Dickens’ desk I made some time ago.
Turning pages and here’s another one! Small article about me and some photos of my furniture and art nouveau roombox.
Still cannot believe my eyes, very happy and humbled. Thank you, Madelva and thank you all for reading my blog! Good weekend to you, guys!
