Are you in the U.S.A. and wish there was a Miniatur Wunderland just a bit closer than Germany? I sure have. And you see that guy in the pic above? He’s trying to make it real. His name is Eiran Gazit and he’s trying to build an interactive, expansive (40,000 sqaure feet!) miniature model in Manhattan. Yes, New York City! So close you guys!

Please consider donating to this Kickstarter (click on Mr. Gazit’s picture above) and you can even get your body scanned and have a 3D mini of yourself placed somewhere in the model!!! I’m super excited about all the interactivity they want to have with this model, and I hope some of you can help make it happen.

Back in January, I won a contest on Deviantart and got mini rocks from smallcreations…soooo I decided to use them by following her tutorial on how to make koi fish and made really small ponds :D
The circular one in the middle is the size of a quarter, the rest are slightly bigger. There’s cellophane, glitter, sand, and a pearl at the bottom to make them seem a bit more fairy tale-like (a mermaid’s pet perhaps?), also to differentiate my own style of ponds from the many others people make. 
I poured a bit too much resin so it leaked down the sides of the ponds a bit :P so I’ll probably glaze the rest to make the shininess seem intentional 
Fish are made from polymer clay (so I don’t wanna hear any of y’all commenting on animal cruelty on bits of molded PVC plastic D:< )

These pieces are now in my shop at a really reasonable price: www.tuckshop.etsy.com

Hasan Kale

Nel post precedente abbiamo parlato dell’ultimo Pittore di Corte dell’Impero Ottomano, l’italiano Fausto Zonaro. Continuiamo con questo nostro breve excursus artistico facendovi conoscere oggi un artista, questa volta turco, decisamente p contemporaneo a noi: Hasan Kale.

Da un seme di zucca, chicco di caffé,  metà di una nocciolina, chiodi, viti, bozzoli di seta, riso o su un qualsiasi ed inaspettato oggetto, il micro-artista Hasan Kale dipinge prevalentemente i paesaggi di Istanbul, la sua città natale, con uno stile neo-classico e neo-orientalista di pregevolissima fattura.

Senza dubbio la micro-arte di Hasan Kale anche se espressa su supporti abbastanza insoliti allo scopo di meravigliare lo spettatore, può comunque degnamente inserirsi sulla scia dell’antica e celebre arte delle miniature ottomane

Fortunatamente in questi ultimi anni l’arte della miniatura é ritornata a rivivere in Turchia dopo un periodo abbastanza lungo di abbandono. Tutto questo grazie al lavoro di artisti come Nur Nevin Akyazıcı, Ahmet Yakupoğlu, Ömer Faruk Atabek e soprattutto Nusret Çolpan che espongono con successo le loro opere nelle Gallerie d’Arte p importanti di tutto il mondo.

Per finire ecco un breve VIDEO dove l’artista Hasan Kale realizza una miniatura su un quadrante di un orologio.

Le foto provengono dalla pagina facebook dell’artista che vi invitiamo a seguire.
