Very quickly, as I have my oldest daughter & her family here & it's bath & storytime now, here is the most beautiful, red oak, handturned, fruit ring filled with a selection of my handmade fruits! The ring was turned by Bertie Pittman (you can find his fab turnings in his Etsy store - BertiesMiniatures) & measures 25mm in diameter & I filled it with raspberries, pears, peaches, cherries & apples. Only a week to go now & hopefully the weather here will improve for the wedding right now it feels like winter, is p*****g down & blowing a gale...lovely!
I am honoured to have been made a Fellow member of IGMA, November 2009 & my miniature creations totally absorb me..it's wonderful to see the minute detail that an artist can produce in something so small! I am constantly challenging myself to create more & more realistic & detailed pieces, often finding I've lost a whole day while working on one piece!
