Here's the online version of the print Hobby Builders Supply catalog. Source: miniatures.com
I came home today to discover the newest Hobby Builders Supply (Miniatures.com) catalog in my mailbox. I began flipping through to see what new sources of inspiration might leap off the page when I saw two spectacular, though familiar images. Mad for Mod of My Mini Mod Pod and Mini Dork of Modern Mini Houses are both featured on the third page of this catalog as part of the layout recognizing all the winners from the 18th Annual Creatin' Contest. While many of us have seen the wonderful pictures on their blogs and Flickr, it's fantastic when the efforts of modern miniaturists are recognized beyond our niche community. Kudos! I'm so glad your work is being recognized by a broader audience. By the way, just what will you purchase with the gift certificates you've each won? I can't wait to see the pictures. Hehe.
I'm a southern lady, probably born several decades too late, cultivating a lush life. I have an eye for Henri Matisse's cutouts, Romare Bearden's collages and Elizabeth Catlett's sculptures. My palate devours prosecco with oysters on the half-shell or pinot noir with dark chocolate. My nose relishes in the scent of magnolia trees, gardenias and the fresh ocean air. My hand lavishes among silks, cashmere and embossed leathers. And oh yeah, I've got an ear for Jimi's guitar licks, a heart for Billie's blues-filled lyrics, and a soul for the call and response of Miles and Coletrane...And I love recreating this beauty I see all around into funky, modern miniature scenes.
I have always been captivated by aesthetics. My constant attention to detail has led me to appreciate all that is pleasing to the senses. Pleasing to the hand, the nose, the (palette) palate, the ear, but especially pleasing to the eye. I'm a flea-market fan, shoe addict and gallery geek. I'm an admirer of style and an avid patron of the arts---always collecting, editing and remixing. Join me out and about in the city as I curate a gallery of all that inspires and in my studio as I craft, well perhaps---experiment. With this blog, I'll explore and catalog, if you will, (mini) many schools of beauty, art and taste into a virtual smashbook...a virtual studio...of Mini*Aesthetics.
