Due to a pinched nerve in my neck these past few weeks, I haven't been able to do much miniature work lately. Fortunately I recovered enough to enable me to teach my miniatures class this past weekend. More on that later this week because today I wanted to show you a few miniature links I found in magazines lately.
In 'The World of Interiors' August 2009 issue there was an article about the writer and artist Denton Welch, who found a lovely 18th century house in a friend's cellar and decided to restore it. The house is now in the collection of the Museum of Childhood in London. Click here for the link. On the website you will find may more dolls houses from their collection.
In the September 2009 issue of The World of Interiors an auction of handmade doll's houses from Transylvania is mentioned, to be held on September 16th at Few & Far in London. Although in the magazine there is a lovely picture of a dolls house, I coudn't find any further information online. Here is the link to Few & Far.
In the August issue of the Dutch magazine 'Linda' I found two miniature references. The first one is a cute and simple dolls house for children made from cardboard, available from Wannekes.
The second one is about artist Tracey Snelling, who uses miniature scenes as art installations. Probably too late to go see them at gallery Cokkie Snoei in Amsterdam (until September 1st), but hopefully the photographs will still be available at the website here.
