Arts & Crafts - New pieces

Well, "new" is a funny way to call them!!! They were new last November!!! Those pieces were made to present at Tom Bishop Show in Madrid.

This time I decide to choose Arts & Crafts style. The exception is the Victorian birdcage and an ebonised table, topped with a very thin leaf of wallnut roots.

The Show was not good (business speaking). Everybody was complaining in the end. The economic crisis is spread along all Europe.

Madrid is very near from Portugal and the expenses are not too much but for those who came from more distant countries were very disappointed. Let’s hope better times arrive soon.

Thanks God I have a very good customer in USA! All those pieces were sold as soon as I arrived from the Show.

Mr. Greg Madl from Swan House Miniatures told me that some of them were sold immediately! Sometimes he has no time to take photos to put  on his WebPage! It  happened with the Colonial armchairs I show in my last post as well as with many other pieces before.

I love miniatures, I love my work but it’s a great incentive that other people likes them too and are so interested till the point to pay for them! Is the best recognition we can have. Everybody knows its not impossible but very difficult to live on this kind of work, but when we sell we can go on, developing our skills, buying new materials, new tools (which are expensive), and dedicate more time to study and research.

Arts & Crafts - Aesthetic Movement  style desk and chair. Both are finished with real leather. I made the handles for the drawers. I couldn't find appropriate models in the market.

 

 

 

I don't like to present those pieces without accessories, so I did these. A table lamp, an ikpot, a pen and a tinny greetings card.
