In Japan, miniaturization has had a long history. In fact, the craft dates back to several thousands of years. Among the most common subjects are bonsai trees, items that represent technological advancement, and even mobile phones. Following the very same trend, Japanese artist Kiyomi (also known as Chiisana Shiawase) showcases her own collection of handmade miniatures.
Apparently these days, artists can miniaturize anything. The more modern and unique miniatures include cat-sized furniture as well as cookies looking like teeny-tiny food plates.
Actually, Chiisana Shiawase is a mother of two. As early as 4:00am, she already starts her day to give more time for her hobby. She uses materials as simple as paper and wire. Meanwhile, she also makes use of perspex.
Using her own wit and artistic style, Kiyomi can create detailed handmade miniatures. One of her favorite themes is the 18th-century world. Among others, you’ll see antique cabinets as well as industrial-style chairs. You can also spot some sewing machines, spools of thread, and sewing scissors.
If you’re fond of clothes, hats, and shoes, you’ll also find their miniature versions in Kiyomi’s art. If, on the other hand, you love cakes, pastries, and bread, the Japanese artist also has a collection of tiny bakeries.
