Moshe Samter- Great mini world

Today I met a special person,natural charmer full of energy,loves company and laughs!
He is 94 this year .
He always made some crafts always trying something new.
Until he landed in the miniature world . He did bookbinding,leather works and other DIY fields .
He makes every display out of scratch ,venir,cardboard,fabric and leather scraps and all nature can offer- seads,shells ect.
.He is a natural talent.
He and his family built a private museum where he shows his lovely art .
I made as many photos as I could to pass you the experience.


Real leather binded books. The open book is the gutenberg bible.

 Snake skin screens on the right.
 Haifa sea stones combines into "virgin island" statues.
a church

a synagoge




 On one pannel Moshe explains and demonstrates his methods.


His tiny circus reminds me on the Alexander Calder circus I've seen in a kinetic toy exhibition.
If you are in Israel,go see this museum in Yoqneam.

Photography classes made me dive again.

I take photography classes since late last October.
When I had to choose my end of term subject, it was clear to me , it would be the  Minis.
So I dived right back as deep as I could and came up with these two bed rooms .
In both, Pattie Jonsonsons four poll bed is reigning.






This is the Black& white sceene.

The following is more flamboyant and includes a hand crocheted bed throw and a washi tape background  decoration.

It meant to be so many thigs. But in the end....






The trigger to this scene was the fire place. I had it ages . I planned and planned and nothing came of it untill now. Than, on one of my morning walks I found the floor and loved it. Architects sample just thrown out....
 So here I was , intending to form some some chalet scene. But it soon occured that any outer view would ruin the fireplace effect. And so I ended up with a somewhat seventy's feel, quirky ( the ear plug frame being the art) and very colorful.
I love my Patie Johnson " x2 minis "  love seat and leather chair.
The love seat was the main push to this color pallet.
well is it elegant? quirky?vintage? cosy?  you tell me!

Cheers
