Maker Fair

Probably my favorite exhibit at the Maker Faire. Neverwas Haul: a three story Victorian decorated house on wheels. Yes, It can be driven! The steering wheel is a ships wheel. The upper level contains a camera obscura and a bookcase with a hidden stairwell.

Life size R2-D2 Robots!

More photos coming!

Thinking Small with Krista Peel

photo: Krista Peel

I've been meaning to share the work of artist Krista Peel with you. She makes all sorts of amazing things. One of my favorite projects are her roomboxes.

These are miniature rooms! So amazing! From her website:

"Each of these handbuilt roomboxes is an art gallery of collected works from around the world.
roomboxes can be purchased, and come with all the lights, accessories and hardware needed for their installation. the exterior can be painted any color for camouflage in the room in which it can hang. Room materials include original miniature artwork, fabrics, beads, paper, wood, mirrors, rocks, pins, tiles, perfume lids, stir sticks, plastic, glass, foam core, bottle tops, artificial plants and pre-made dollhouse furnishings."

We are so proud to have one of our miniature tree ghosts featured in her 80's room

Little Factories

miniature cloud & heart factories

We've been busy coming up with new art lately.
My favorite new things are these tiny ceramic factories.
We have plans for a whole city of these, or at least an industrial sector.
