From the Recherche, Woolgather Show 2018
Original art by Stephanie Winters
Theatrically designed cigar box miniatures. Each design is an original assemblage of miniature stage art. All elements are carefully selected or hand-made by me. I look for vintage and unique pieces. I hand paint, refinish, cut, sew, sculpt, glue and cast. Every scene is a unique experience.
The spoonbill is hand sculpted with paper clay and handprinted. The feathers are antique millinery feathers. The background scene is created from Victorian reprinted paper theater. Lametta fountain with cast water that even has tiny money pieces on the bottom. Dollhouse greenery as well as dried botanicals. Metal trim and Dresden paper.
Measurements: 8" (w) x 8" (h) x 2" (d)
