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 ;-).


  1. Love the chow mein, Kiva, those chopsticks are awesome! :D And I always love your googley-eyed terrified oysters, they remind me of Alice in Wonderland (or was it Through the Looking Glass? I get the stories confused. The bit about the Walrus.)

  4. Tus pescados son un referente de buen hacer, pero lo que me ha hecho tener apetitio son esos fideos que no podian haberte quedado mas reales.
