A selection of images of my furniture, murals and fabrics but also of things that inspire me. Please feel free to add them to your pinterest board.
If you have any images of my products that you would like me to share on my website please email them to me and I shall place them in my gallery.
One of my wonderful customers sent me an image of the little 19th C. French chair positioned in what has to be one of the most glamorous bathrooms I have seen. Thank you Esin for sending it to me.....my mums shower taps and rail can be seen above the bath! What a small world - literally!!!
The 4 poster bed is made in sections - here is is with some of the sections painted in a faux wood finish ready for assembly
We positioned the chairs in the windows of my French Dolls house in order to get a sense of interior and scale.
The chairs are upholstered in Pure Silk Dupion
The dolls house is made from the design by http://www.atelier-de-lea.com/ whom I admire greatly for her style and design. You can find out how to make the house from her book - http://www.amazon.com/Big-Book-Miniature-House-decorate/product-reviews/1861089546 and there are You tube videos too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDJk290WjCY&list=RDXqTBdTUjAe4&index=4
Maybe not the most practical place to place a chair but then there might be a good reason - who knows!
The french word for Armchair is fauteuil
The wood is a wood effect achieve by blending different tones to create a random wood finish.
I nearly remortaged the house to buy this original piece of stunning antique french fabric! When I see something this beautiful it is hard to say no.....reproducing it in 12th scale onto silk and possibly cotton - also may have a go at wallpaper - it really is beautiful
This image is of a full scale room but the mural is one that I will be selling.
This image is one taken during prototyping
In a French Paris Flea market I stumbled upon this very pretty ornate and rather lovely small table. The shop owner gave me permission to photograph it from many different angles
If you love this chair it is available to purchase in my shop - please click here to visit my shop
All my items are signed.
This is a 12th scale copy of an original. The finish is a cream with gilt highlights and the fine dupion silk has slight padding.
These two chairs are the originals that I copied and created in 12th scale. They date to the 19th C. and are copies of earlier 18thC style chairs.
This hugely gorgeous and ornate Console table was incredibly difficult to photograph as it was tucked away behind the most stunningly expensive urns and chairs. The next image is the drawing before the modelling
Part of the process of design is to draw out all the detail of the design. The next step is then to produce a prototype before moulding
This is the prototype ready to be moulded and then recreated. It was important to me that the table had as much detail as possible and was as true to the original as possible
A close up image of the prototype showing some of the detail - the following images show the real thing
details of the side leg
Details of the centre front cartouche
looking up from under the table
Deep in the heart of Normandy is a chateau abandoned and beautiful.
I simply love what these guys produce - miniatures at their best.....I could look at them for hours.
In 2015 I visited this stunning Chateau in France which is owned by the incredibly quirky and talented Peter Garbielse (a box artists who works in very small scale)
I simply love rose swags and finials - I would have them on everything if I could! This tiny copy of a french Console table found in France has small rose elements.
I love collecting Antique French Treasures and sometime sell them in eBay...the little black french bust is my favourite at the moment!
I like to play around with all sorts of things - had a little experiment making satsumas - the detailing nearly made me go blind! and when looked at from a normal distance you can barely see the detail...had fun making them.
The detail on this mural is exquisite.
Sophies long locks cascade down the back of the chair. She is available for sale but is by no means a perfect doll - see my shop "Misc. items for sale" to see if she is still available. I love making dolls - struggle with the hands but really loved dressing them.
What a beautiful backdrop - alas this is full size!
I manufacture finials and took them to France to the wonderful home of Peter Gabrielse - a dutchman living in a huge Chateau in lower Normandy with his cat - Peter is a very talented retired set designer who know creates the most beautiful 3D art - pleas take a look - http://www.petergabrielse.com/ He Juxtaposes big with small and it works incredibly well
I simply love this! The detailing is sumptuous. Could be my next little project!
I simply love this fabric on this little french hat box....simply gorgeous and would be beautiful in 12th scale. One of my good friends owns a very pretty house in Warwickshire and amongst many of her wonderful French finds was this little hat box. I really do need to create this fabric in 12th scale!
One of the murals we love!
