Держите новое видео, про шлифрейсмус. В планах про циркулярки и фрезер.
А я вот забыла, что выложила на днях небольшой типа урок на тему шаблонов и того, как сделать много-много одинаковых деталей для наших миниатюрных дел. Урок получился совсем спонтанный, вот просто захотелось включить камеру и просто так рассказать, что и сделала. Быстро отредактировала, выложила на Youtube. Я далека от какого-то качества в операторском деле, но, надеюсь, получилось понятно.
И еще одно видео, это, простите, влог (как блог, только в видео). Я очень часто дома снимаю на видео свой процесс работы, потому как записи на бумаге иногда помогают слабо в том, чтобы вспомнить как что делалось. А с видео это очень быстро и очень просто, только бы места на жестком диске потом хватило. А сейчас, так как готовлюсь к шоу и времени на посты мало, решила, что свои видео можно и выложить-показать. Шевеленки там еще больше, но я буду стараться в будущем этого избегать. Вот. Надеюсь, вам понравится.
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:
I’m reorganizing my boards on Pinterest – mostly the ones with art nouveau style furniture and such. So I have decided to make special board on Gaspar Homar. I recently copied his music stand and art nouveau sofa.
Gaspar Homar was born in Spain in 1870 and died in 1953. 82 years, huh? Not bad at all. I found his biography only in Spanish ( and my Spanish sucks to be honest) but I managed to find out that not only he was a fantastic cabinetmaker but he also was into mosaics and house decoration, lighting etc.
Here is on of such houses, all the furniture is now in the museum in Catalonia:
The weather in Moscow is terrible – raining and no sun at all. Even May was perfect with its sunny days.
And now I’m back to work with another project, need to model everything in 3d before, it’s quite complicated project for me, so I have to work in several programs at the same time.
Just wanted to share this great link with you – IGMA forum is open now-http://www.fineminiaturesforum.com. Wonderful artisans and lots of information for you.
I found that First Cut short film I saw on BBC4 some time ago. You can find it on vimeo site – here.
Last week I also updated my page with the pieces I sell, check it out! If you are interested in buying something contact me – email@example.com.
The second and the last day of the Festival was great, we needed to open our tables one hour earlier, so that we would have a chance to see other exhibitors. I took my chance though some tables were still covered. Anyway, I was lucky to see David Hurley’s work, I bought his micro carving chisels set, didn’t try it yet.
I also had a chance to see latest Mulvany & Rogers commission. Though at the moment it was closed:(
You can see some more photos here.
I feel bad that I didn’t make any photos later, I didn’t take my camera.
The story goes on…
It was my first show abroad, so it was exciting to see all the people – old ladies with their grandchildren, married couples desperately looking for something to buy.
My first thought – nobody’s taking photos! It’s quite common, I’d say, very popular thing in Russia. Lots of people who came by just to take a picture. Here – it was mostly press, and some people who read about me in the magazine or knew me from my blog. As for me, I was really shy to ask for photos – to see all those fantastic artisans, was a bit too much for me, I have so many things to learn, and their creations were really close to perfection.
At the start of the day so many people encouraged me, it was fantastic! They said that the style I’m working in is unusual, mostly they see Victorian or Georgian, so they were happy to see something new and fresh.
I finally got back from London, actually it was Thursday flight back, I missed my baby girl so much, that I decided to take a break and spend some quality time with her. Next week will be only about family, so I won’t be posting much except my impressions from KDF.
It was my first time in London at all, my first miniature show, so I was very nervous and excited at the same time. I also wanted to visit several museum, but I guess this post won’t be about it, some other time. First of all, there won’t be lots of photos – I was busy at my table, then when I had a chance to see other artisans’ tables – it was the last thing on my mind. Besides, photos won’t show the real beauty, you have to see it personally.
I arrived on Friday – before my trip I made lots of boxes for my pieces, at first I was thinking of making them with plywood, they all were supposed to be laser cut. But all I had at the moment was MDF – turned out it was a real good choice. Everything arrived safely in two suitcases. I had only 17 boxes, not much but at the moment I had no idea
I have only one photo in my Instagram of the boxes before gluing them.
I ordered three sizes – all the pieces were divided accordingly.
