Detailed Miniature Dishes by Tomo Tanaka

Japanese artist Tomo Tanaka’s highly detailed miniature dishes. Although each dish looks delectable, the mouth-watering glazes and textures are deceiving. The dollhouse-sized food items that would barely amount to a mouthful are actually made out of clay and epoxy. Every item is made to scale – precisely 1/12 of the original size – which makes all of the objects look like they came from the same miniscule realm. He produces the tiny masterpieces under the brand Nunu’s House and sells to collectors and hobby enthusiasts.

Kendal Murray’s Miniature Sculptures

Artist Kendal Murray builds miniature mixed-media sculptures that take viewers on a playful and imaginative journey. She is using tiny toy figures and objects to create small worlds filled with creative memories, daydreams, and fantasies. The scenes are taking place on unexpected objects like on top of a small purse, or on one side of a compact mirror. Kendal says: “The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts.”

Dalton J. Paul Getty

If you think that pencil is a tool for drawing, painting or writing notes – you’re wrong! 45-year-old carpenter, Dalton J. Paul Getty for 25 years turns ordinary pencils into incredible miniature sculptures. Without using a magnifying glass. “When I was a schoolboy, – says the master, – I made gifts to my friends, carving out their names on a pencils. Later, I decided to try sculpture, and after a long searching the choice fell on a pencil lead.” For such work Dalton uses blades, sewing needles and special knives for the sculptures. However, the material is too fragile and can not allow mistakes: at home Mr. Getty has more than 100 unfinished or broken sculptures. “At first I had a few broken figures, later I decided to keep them all in memory. I call this “cemetery collection”: they are all dear to me, yet I spent alone with them a few months.” Artist could spend a few months at one sculpture. For the creation miniature alphabet Dalton spent 2,5 years. “My patience is simply amazing people, because nowadays everyone wants to be quicker, faster and faster.”
