small scale

Mar 31, 2009

one of my favorite artists is charles ledray, who is known for both his miniature sculptures whittled out of real human bone and his miniature clothing made exactly to scale. the human bone thing is simultaneously breath-takingly beautiful and off-putting. i would, on the other hand, love to own one of the apparel pieces. when photographed up close, they just look like normal clothes because he pays such close attention to detail, but when seen in context with a size reference, you notice just how small they really are. everything from museum guard uniforms to carpenter outfits to hippie denim shirts, they all have individual character.

Man, you will get sick of my superlatives, but seriously, I FREAKING LOVE MINIATURES, and detailed, accurate CLOTHING minatures? I think you've introduced me to a new favourite artist now...
