My first blog started out as a way to document the process of creating a Miniature Setting for the Philadelphia Flower Show. Since then I have explored miniatures in general and have been asking why miniatures are so prevalent in cultures across time and place. I see miniatures, whether exquisitely constructed or roughly put together, as portals that invite the viewer to visit an alternative place and experience a different world. This blog doesn’t consider miniatures as cute playthings but as imaginative productions that are true marvels and wonders.
