9 miniatures 7.4.12 (2nd update)


Diver | Stork | Circus Elephant | Oobird | Indian Relic | Turtle | Muse | Lion | Toad | Scrap art miniatures | Around 5″ tall

I’ve been experimenting recently, trying to do what I’ve been doing, only at a much smaller scale. I’ve found (and been given) tons of really cool small objects that really look great at that scale…

Diver: Old copper wire, flatware, key, air pressure thingy, and strange metal torso – something out of “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Stork: Plier fragment, battery, musical instrument fragment and copper band – how frightening to be the little newborn!

Circus Elephant: Just a wonderful faucet, a screw cap with old stamped lettering and a washer – baby elephants are among the cutest of God’s creatures…

 

POSTED 7.3.12:

Oobird: Various wonderful dug relic cast-offs contributed by Roy and Vicky.

Indian Relic: Arizona ghost town hinge thing and other beautiful, small relics from Roy and Vicky.

 

POSTED 7.4.12:

Turtle: The smashed spoon and “reversible” stove thing were just meant to combine on this one.

Muse: I think a few of the tiny dug relics that make up this piece came from clocks, but I’m not sure…

Lion: Some of the decorative brass and copper relics I’ve collected…

Toad: The main object came from an Arizona ghost town – the rest are just found fragments of this and that…

 

I like working at this size, and placing the objects on black felt accentuates the natural colors and textures and isolates the shapes, which are the qualities that initially drew me to this medium.

Check back from time to time, because I think I’m gonna be adding more of these…
