 Dioramas I love 

I love paper work ,I love dioramas and I love drawing and design.
Here are some: 
Cinderella and her ugly sisters, is the first photo.
I found a sleek wooden box, covered it with printed paper and off I went to form quirky faces . found lovely background and finishes and voila!

In the second you can see the Bling of the night life !
I went a bit wild but this is what I love!

 Hi everybody,

I leaped a small leap into the minis again.

I found awesome crates- a friend challenged me to make her a diorama.

Request was to make it a bit eastern style "old Jaffa "

For the walls I used papermachee and acrylic paint.

the wallpaper is actually just a patterned paper.

the mirror is actually a black rubber mirror with magnet for the fridge ,which I found a few years ago in England.

While the front is papermachee,

The back is aquarelle done by me. Palm trees and mandarines and of course the sea.

The cactus are mini ceramic. So is the vase.

I do hope you enjoy this! I am drawn to Dioramas lately,Or working in boxes in general.

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.
