As you have probably figured out, I had the opportunity to go the Chicago International Miniature Show hosted by Tom Bishop. I was so pleased to find that there were more modern and midcentury modern items at the show. I noticed that there were several vendors who typically only have traditional items that were venturing into modern or at least modernish. Here are a few highlights:
First off, here are some really tiny modern items by Small Scale Living.
Can you believe these are 1/4" scale? They're laser cut, but they also had a 3-D printer there which was very cool to see in action. They didn't have these in stock, but you can believe me when I say that I'm ordering a set.
Next is Rainbow Hand and Kathy
The maker Patrick Kinney was so nice and his work is fabulous. The joinery on his pieces is amazing. He uses and mixes many different kinds of wood.
They make some amazing room boxes, but this is the first modern one I have seen.
And my Personal Favorite of the New Introductions is Atomic Miniature:
This is the owner/artist Michael Yurkovik
At first I thought these chairs were 3-D prints, but they are not. I have no idea how he creates the seats but they are pretty amazing.
The tiny T.V.s are also battery operated. Oh how I wish I had the funds to buy at least one of everything from Atomic Miniature!
Tomorrow some old favorites in the modern mini word!
