My original occupation is visual arts teacher.
Once, one of my students showed me her miniature works. I liked it so much that I decided to try it. So sometimes the teacher learns from their students...
Meanwhile, making miniatures has become a passion for me. It requires a very high self-discipline.
You must pay attention to every little detail. That is, the devil lies in the details!
Making a single piece requires a lot of time and a variety of materials. My work method: 2 hours work 1 hour rest.
Materials used: Professional Clay, Cotton threads, feathers
I can make those animals best which I love most.
For example: hedgehog, parrot, etc. ...
Is my personality as spiky as a hedgehog and as colorful as a parrot ???
It's a big challenge for me to make a very small bird, because they are easily lost.
Occasionally I accidentally throw the finished piece together with the remaining materials into the trash.
Once a mini tit (half an inch) was blown out of my hand by the wind. I was looking for it until late night under my balcony in the grass.
Or, for example, I dropped a small parrot on the floor. I was looking for it with a magnifying glass, but my dog (Cotton de toulear) found it sooner than I did. Of course he chewed it apart.
I like jogging a lot. I've been jogging 6-10 kilometers outdoors every day for 22 years, in good and bad weather. Sometimes with my partner, sometimes with my dog. Good health is important for work and jogging makes it possible.
