Fantasy world :)

I posted some photos about other marvelous miniature artist's work yesterday in my blog. Today I post about my miniature works. I have a lot of photos. :D

I made miniature cookies by clay. I did by two type method. They are same design but it's different figure. Left side cookies are not beautiful cross. I must to more practice. To make right side cookies are hard work a little. I like a method of left side. I choose right side cookies to my miniature work this time.

I already showed you this photo, but let me show again. One shape has hidden in the floor. Can you find that? If you could find that, your life in the next year will be ultra happy! hahaha. (hint: a bear)

Three lollipops. These candy are called "pero pero candy" or "perolin candy" in Japan. "Pero pero" is a adverb, meaning "suck".

This is failure. X( This color make fall off appetite. hehehe But I guess this can useful for a diet, :D because I loose desire to eat sweets when I see this.

To make plant it's very hard to me, but I challenge to make that. This little tree is still bald, but in the next photo....

it had leaves and five colors apples, green, yellow, orange red and gold. :D Some veins disappeared in the making process. :,-(
I made little story :D,  "If the person do a lot of good deed, gold apple will has in the tree and it will hear the person's prayer..."

Oh? Something is beside the tree...
It is sold Hundreds line up for sale of Year-End of Jumbo lottery tickets in this season in Japan. The first prize is three hundred million yen. (about three and nine million US dollars)

...OK, next. Leave Miss Rat.

This is a muffler to miniature bear. I crocheted by organic cotton. I can't knit and crochet. XO So I was crocheting with see the book how to crochet.
(In the high school I went had a home economic, one time in three years (Japanese high school has three years) has a subject about knitting or crocheting. The subject was very suffering to me. I had to knit a sweater. Anyway I didn't want to knitting, one day I threw it on the corner of living floor by irritation. I never did knitting, but strangely, stitches increased little by little. Then I was convinced of existence of dwarf in my home. LOL But in reality my mother knitted the sweater. The sweater was done by my mother, but I and my family nobody wore that. Because it was very heavy as an armor by I used a lot of woolen yearn haphazard and bottom of the sweater was poor stitches by my poor work. It was not cool. I don't know the armor sweater where is now. This story is long ago. LOL)

I drew illustration to package of cookie.  I drew detail, but...

detail is not need to reduction. But I will draw illustration detail because sometime I have opportunity that use big size. This can made by stainless steel pipe. I leaved a face of a part of stainless steel.



He lives in a forest, make his living space by use a ruin. He has spent happy time and happy life with his likes. 

I will put this photo later on flicker.

Thanks for reading and seeing.

My wonderful treasures

I went to Japan Guild miniature show last month. I got wonderful miniature plants there. :-))) ta-dah~!

(from left: Mr. Masahiro Mahara, Hiroyuki & KyokoMrs. Hiromi Takahashi)
These plants are sooooooo amazing!!! Hiroyuki & Kyoko are very famous in the miniature world in Japan and in United States too. Sometimes they go to America, and have a course that teaching to how to make miniature. 

I put wonderful miniature plants on the little corner type dollhouse I made. Oh! They are be more wonderful!!

I also got miniature glass bottle and cake stand. They are so tiny! Two pieces of bread are my works. I tried put on the cake stand. Bread is be so lovely too. hehehe~.

I will collect more other miniature plants. :-) I will make dollhouse to display those near future. I noticed that it is better than display in the glass case. 

Artists, these works, are very good persons. They answered to my questions pleasantly. I think that their personality have appeared in their works. :-)) Anyway, marvelous!

Shelf and food etc.

I made miniature box shelf. I made hinges too. I don't want to make this again, because it was hard work to me.  :-( I try test to open.  It put hinges on the box by tape temporarily.

Open~. Good! I will put board to inside and a handle on the door.
I may buy miniature hinges next time...

Miniature walnut bread.

Lovely doughnut hill. It not glue each other yet. When it glue, the hill will be more tall. And, with lovely candy sticks. :-9

Miniature toadstool cushion. Back side is red.  

I made miniature candles with shabby can again. Red candle is passion, orange is cheerful and blue is peace of mind....

OK, these photos are not about miniature. I have gone to illustration class in community college. My teacher gave us a theme to draw the illustration on the paper coaster to both sides. The theme was "Christmas".  We drew the illustration of Christmas on the coaster, and remake to Christmas ornament. :) I didn't draw on the coaster directly. I already drew that on other paper. So, I cut a circle and glued on the coaster. I drew red sox and..... 

candy cane with a snowman. By the way, Japanese snowman is not three snow balls, just two. I like European snowman. :)

A lot of photos about miniature :)

I am very busy for long time. I don't have enough time to write blog in English. :,-( I always need enough time when I write in English. But I will make every effort.

I sewed new bears. Bears color of yellow ocher and...
(made of miniature fur)

cream. It seemed white in this photo, but actual color is cream like white. I don't especially decide make a boy or girl bear when I was making it. 
(made of silk fur)

But if put a ribbon on the head, bear is a girl....

if put the ribbon in the neck, it is a boy.

These are nuts made from air dry clay. I didn't worry to detail, because these nuts mix into the clay. I make miniature stollen.

I made other nuts and dry fruit too. A stollen in the right include nuts, a stollen in the left is not include nuts. Because it just paint to surface.

I sliced a stollen included nuts. I made texture like sponge on the sliced stollens. And I made damage like scratch on the cutting board.   

Miniature wooden boxes and wreath of bay leaf. Bay leaves made from paper. I make shabby on the box.

Miniature red sock, candy cane and candle. Two balls made by needle felting.  

I guess I could good twist and make beautiful pattern of red and white. A candle have a story. A bear made candle by honey, put it into a shabby can. Aroma may honey and sweet. hahaha Of course, this candle is not real candle, made from clay.

Tokyo views

The other day, I went to Roppongi, Tokyo. This city is mode, there are a lot of clubs,  and a lot of rich people, celebrity and foreigners lives there.  
This photo is a TV station building TV-Asahi. Tokyo tower in the left of this photo is a place of interest.  

I went to Roppongi hills. There are a lot of shopping stores, restaurants, a movie theater and an art museum. I went to a observation deck. This building has 52 floors. These views see from 52 floors.  It seems diorama. :)

Tokyo`s sky is not clear in this season. 

The green zone is cemetery. A lot of Japanese famous authors has slept here.

It say that this building has preventive measures to earthquake. 

These buildings are apartment houses. Rich people live in these buildings. :O
Buildings are high, and rent is high too!  

You can see yellow "U"  in the center of this photo. This "U" was a roller coaster (half pipe). Famous discount store had it on the top of their building to get customers. But many stores and residents live in near this discount store protested to this store, because the machine make grave noise and crime.  (They were going to operation at daytime and midnight. ) After all, this machine never worked by protest of neighborhood. 

I was hungry, so I ate hot sandwich in the cafe, this floor. I wanted to eat with see view, I sat on the seat in the side of the window. But this day was very shine day and high temperature. I couldn't sit in this seat for long time....

Next, I went to Japanese garden in TV station. 

It is little garden.

The residence buildings, see from the ground. Biiiig!

Some minis

I made miniature stool, biscuit style. :-9

These are pitcher to maple syrup. One is drip style, and other is no drip. 

Mini blackboard. This mini blackboard substitute for plate. I put donuts.  

How change this gray head.... see next photo. ;-)

Halloween season will come next month. I made miniature new girl container. Their hats are halloween style, pumpkin and witch hat. These hats are not copy, each just one.

Take off hat.

There is also halloween in Japan in recent years. But there is not custom children visit to some house to take candy. (I read on the newspaper for a few years ago, people in small community do it, for example, to visit each other's or friend's house. ) Ornament to halloween and halloween style goods sell in the stores, halloween style sweets  also sell in the cake shop. I guess Japanese people, not all, just decorate, put pumpkin ornament (made from plastic etc.) on the table etc. I'm sorry, I don't know about Japanese halloween very well, because I do not decorate. hehehe...
