Miniatures in the Modern Age

The internet has opened up a whole new world to miniaturists - online groups and discussion boards, the ability to find tutorials and other do-it-yourself materials at the click of a mouse.

Now Gaye Coonce of Anderson, CA, has taken the hobby another step forward. She's the mastermind behind Creating Dollhouse Miniatures, a video blog just chock-full of miniature eye-candy. Virtual tours of dollhouses and personal collections, tutorials, inside looks at artists at work - all the best videos of scale miniatures in one place!

"I have spent thousands of hours on YouTube watching countless videos and posting the best," says Gaye. "Many people don't know that there are videos of miniatures on YouTube, and YouTube isn't child-friendly. Handpicking the videos and posting them all to one place that is all about miniatures eliminates that problem. It's also another way to promote miniatures and the artists, and introduce the world of miniatures to a whole new generation."

In addition to the 100+ videos available, Creating Dollhouse Miniatures is a great resource of links and information about the art of miniatures.

Gaye encourages miniature artists and collectors to create a video and submit it to the site. "Anything that promotes the art of miniatures!"

Griffins, traditionally, are Guardians. Often carved at temple doors in ancient times, they were said to guard the way to Wisdom. I, on the other hand, seem to be the Guardian primarily of odd bits of string, pinecones, scraps of paper, mismatched socks, old calendars, homeless imps and gnomes, pencils with no erasers, jokes nobody gets, forgotten gods, keys with no locks, and other people’s lighters. If any of these things might be of use to you, let me know.
