small scale

i have a confession to make. i'm absolutely in love with tiny objects. you know, model train towns, dollhouses, tiny pies, etc., etc.

i'm not sure what my obsession with miniature things means or exactly when it started, but i've been working small scale for a long time now. (at least since 1998. my senior show included 70 paintings and not one of them was over 5" x 6" (about 12 cm x 15 cm, give or take a bit)).

continuing in that vein, i've started making small sculpey objects this week. (i don't have access to a kiln right now so i'm having to work with what i've got.) you've already seen the previous post about the tiny katamari. today i made a teeny tiny gamecube with a wavebird controller.

(sorry for the (usual) awful picture, i didn't have access to the 3 megapixel camera when i took it.)

i know it might not be exciting for anyone else except me, but i'm really into this right now. it's been a while since i've worked with anything claylike and i'm smitten with the tactile-ness of it.
