Hearth and Home (Scene from a Miniature) by 

Close up from “La Casita” (Little House in Baja), one of my miniature creations, in this case inspired by our real home in Baja, Mexico although it’s not a model of the house we had: more like a compilation of the homes of many friends we knew while living there.

It’s also a memory piece, featuring momentos from people, places and events such as the stone table, made from a chunk of ladrillo (brick) from our actual patio. The walls, fireplace and floor are all hand-made as are the books, record-jackets, games and cushions on the couch. I collected all the shells myself, and found the little pottery (approx. 1/4" in size), in Mexico as well.

The dog is Paco who belonged to a friend of mine. The charcoal in the fireplace is real too! But that, I brought from Canada. When you work in “Found Miniatures” (as opposed to purchasing your elements) nearly anything is game.

The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. Francis Bacon
