More new furniture
I've been focusing on furniture lately, partly because I can only have so many room boxes on hand (sort of LOL). I came across another interesting Paul Frankl design that I modified slightly - a low bookcase. This piece clearly shows the influence oriental designs had on Mr Frankl. I took this photo of it beside the coffee table I recently made as well. The bookcase is about 29 scale inches high.
Based on Paul Frankl originals
I recently came across a napkin ring that just begged me to get it and do something with it; so I did. The result is a table about 17 scale inches tall, with a acrylic top. I'll have something on it when I take photos for the web site, but I sort of like the "art photo/sculpture" aspect of this shot.
I've working with miniatures professional since 1998, focusing on original modern work especially lights and furniture. I also do film/book themes,federal/Georgian and other period rooms or just about anything else a client dreams up.
Before I started miniatures full time I ran a small consulting company (database and system design) and before that I was a policy analyst for the provincial government and - yes - before that a psychologist and before THAT a teacher.
I started my post secondary education in engineering,changed to psychology and ended up doing graduate working first in psychology and later in administration. All of which ties in DIRECTLY to miniatures - I think.
