A writer of childrens books Elisabet Österlund asked me to make the characters in her books. Two little trolls 6 cm high.
This year I had the opportunity to participate in an exhibition for miniaturists here in Gothenberg. It took place at Engleson´s gallery and we were 9 exhibitors.
Below you can see one of my roomboxes. It is a scene from a comedy TV series “Albert and Herbert”.
I start the new year of 2021 with a picture of my Christmas scene. It is buildt around the veranda (from Art of mini). Everything except the Christmas tree and the veranda are handmade
I`ve also updated the bird side
I´ve been busy producing lots of birds for exhibitions and lots of orders, but now it is time to show my new miniatures. You will find new birds if you look a the menu; birds.
I ´ve also created some new characters.
It´s a while since I published pictures, but now I´m back with new items. Some new birds are born and there will soon be pictures of some birds of prey. Look for Birds in the menu.
Miniature making is like a Cornu Copia. When one idea is completed, a new idea will come
Today I will show the steps from raw stone to sculpture. Sometimes the stone itself determines the outcome of the final product. At first I wanted to make a vase but the first shape was a bit too big. I looked at the piece and imagined a body. Why not make a torso. This stone was rather soft so it was easy to cut.
The difficulty with a soft stone is that it will easily fragment when carving so you have to be very careful.
The Torso is about 3,5cm
A lightbox with a mirror makes a feeling of depth. The pictures are taken from an angle that gives the box a different shape. It´s in fact a rectangle.
I´m very happy to have recieved a space at the Kensington Christmas Show. Maybe I´ll see you there.
Making faires, trolls and witches is one of my favourite activities. Combining soapstone, light and a fairy in a garden scene is an attempt to create a sense of mysticisim.
Some work among many others is the painting below. The troll couple was a present for my daughters wedding.
