Melting icemen sculptures!!

Holy cow!! Check this out! Nele Azevedo, a Brazilian artist, had a public installation where she sat hundreds of these little sculptures on some steps!! How in God's name did she manage to put them all on display before the first one became a puddle?? She must have worked VERY fast!! I love this!!

Chow Mein, fish, and uhh...eyeballs

Another rather long absence from blogging :-(. I've been busy making things for customers- a gypsy theme, fish and produce for a house, etc. I think I've mentioned this before, but I've always loved looking in the windows of Japanese restaurants- the ones with the fake food displays, complete with hovering chopsticks. There was a time, in San Francisco, when I looked into buying some of them (NOT cheap!). This was before I got into making miniatures. So, I've made a wee version of Chow Mein with "floating" chopsticks! I think I will make a bowl of Japanese noodle soup with chopsticks next. The other pieces are Rainbow Trout and the ubiquitous eyeball thing ;-).

Asian Pears

Asian Pears are one of my favorite fruits! They are quite large, apple shaped, and nearly the color of Bosc Pears. The flesh is firm and crisp, not mushy in the least. I've made a basket full of extra speckly ones ;-).
