Why Make Minis?


Painter Georgia O'Keeffe said, ‘I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty’. For me, the opposite is true; there’s an enchantment in taking things from real life and making them so small that people really must concentrate to notice the details. It's as though the essence of everyday things intensifies when you reduce the scale.

These images are from a workshop I taught in 2011. I haven't made many dollhouse plants since. Soon going to change that!

  9. Mini plants are far more captivating than HUGE ones, because you have to zoom in to look closely at them and then it's the sheer Wonder of them which takes hold of your heart.
