“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”-Albert Einstein
There isn’t no age barrier when it comes to miniatures. Almost everyone can enjoy them. In this miniature world, the imagination is what really counts! They also give the opportunity to create a world of many tiny items we may never hope to enjoy in full size.
This Japanese mother of two, Kiyomi, wakes up at 4 AM in the morning to make time for her hobby. And not any hobby. She manages to find time to dedicate herself making impressive miniatures. Can you begin to imagine the great deal of patience that that requires?
The miniaturization in Japan has a long history.
From the classic miniatures like bonsai trees to modern technology like mobile phones, nearly everything is suitable for miniaturization. Mini furniture, a variety of food, tiny plates, and silverware are just some of the items of this Japanese artist’s collection. She creates some kind of interior design chic to the mini world of doll-houses, with antique handmade accessories. Kiyomi uses several different materials like paper, wire, and perspex. The impressively detailed collection of tiny creations includes everything you would find in the 18th-century world. The breathtaking work includes antique cabinets and chairs, spools of thread, sewing scissors, and a vintage sewing machine. There are also petite shoes and hats placed in a little clothing store,too. And thats not all, there is a mini bakery full of realistic delicious teeny-tiny pastries and brightly colored cakes, too. Scroll down and be amazed by this collection of majestic and vintage images of her work, courtesy of boredpanda.
