Miniatures Spectacular - Nearly there!

‘Tis the night before Parkhurst and I’m very excited! Our annual miniatures fair is always a magical experience. The primary reason I take a table at the fair every year is so that I have an excuse to be there all day, every day. And of course so that I can have a base from which to shop, and a table under which to stash my newly acquired treasures. This year I am also offering for sale some of the best miniatures that I have made in a long while.
So what's with the suitcase?  I will tell you next week :-)
In the meantime, here is a sneak preview of some of the miniatures I will be offering for sale tomorrow.
This little one I've named Minnow.  She is only 9cm tall, made from polymer clay and mohair.  I don't know whether I will have the heart to let her go...
Two vintage style dolls made from polymer clay.  About 10cm tall, wire jointed.  I love the new glaze that I'm using.
Polymer clay 'people pins'.  these are always a winner at fairs, and fun to make.  I didn't have time to make too many this year though.
A tiny (8cm) jointed kitty with hand painted stripes.  This is another one I'm tempted to keep.
Needlefelted dog 1/12 scale about 4cm high.  I wish this one would find a home.  He was messing around with the crockery while I packed.
I managed to finish several of these micro tiny (4cm) polymer clay dolls.  They have wired arms, and take absolutely hours to paint.  This batch has particularly nice faces, the photo doesn't do them justice, I will try to snap a few pictures in better light at the fair tomorrow.

That's it from me.  Hope to see you at the fair, and if you can't be there, have a creative weekend.


  1. Wonderful creations, but oh, Little Minnow steals my heart. Look at that sweet little face....she is precious.


  2. You are so talented. Those teeny dolls are beautiful.
    I hope you do well.

  3. Ok - so tell us did Minnow and Kity go to new homes, or are they back in the suitcase? Home you had a wonderful day and sold everything and got orders to last you for the next few months.
    I think your work is as beautiful as always - to talented.
