My friend and I went to Arnhem last Thursday. We took a class with Ann High on Friday, carving a relief design for a 14th century chest. It was a wonderful class and I have learned a lot, even though I did not finish the chest.
I planned to take pictures during the class but forgot all about it. However, you can read a short report on the class by my classmate Marion on her blog 'Marion's Miniatures'. In case you are wondering which one is me in Marion's photos, I am the one sitting opposite Marion, in the grey T-shirt (second photo).
On Saturday my friend and I went to the Arnhem Dolls House Show. As usual we didn't have enough time to see the whole show and missed many stands. But it was a wonderful show again and we both bought some great miniatures. This time I only bought a few small items, but I still managed to be out of money before the end of the day.
I quickly snapped a few photos of some of my purchases:
Some china by Stokesay Ware for my new dining room. I still need the flatware and cutlery as you can see ;) Also yummy sandwiches, some apple slices and an Easter bunny by Georgia Marfels. In the background you can just about make out the wallpaper I bought for the new dining room.
The china again, this time an accidental artist's impression. I hit a wrong button in my photo editing program and this image came out. I rather liked it.
This wonderful group of cherubs was made by a Spanish artist, Victoria Heredia Guerbós. Isn't it amazing? Just look at all the detail!
With my hand close to the cherubs you can get a better idea of the minute detail Victoria managed to get into this piece. Look at the little bellies on them, so precious.
