Hey guys! I took a little break this week from La Vie Mini to do some Paris sight-seeing with my in-laws. Now that I’ve had my fill of tourist-traps for a while, I’m back to writing about minis, just in time to find you some cool conversation-starters for your weekend (assuming your friends are into that kind of thing).
#1. Did you hear about the Kattarshians?
#2. Joshua Smith’s remarkable miniature sculptures were featured by BBC.
His current exhibition at the Muriel Guépin Gallery in New York runs until March 25.
#3. In more tiny animal news, new species of miniature frogs were found in India.
#4. Miniature sushi made the rounds this week.
#5. Gerard Klein Hofmeijer’s “The Little House” exhibit at D. Thomas Fine Miniatures is extended until March 15.
Hofmeijer’s work focuses on “celebrating the preservation of period Dutch architecture in miniature.” The Dollhouse Decorating Blog had an excellent post this week about the artist, who sculpted this replica of the building featured in Vermeer’s 1657 painting, “The Little Street.”
