David Edwards describes himself as a full-time miniaturist. He has been pursuing his craft since 1983 and now has an impressive collection of teeny, tiny, everyday household objects. Among them are: hairbrushes have real bristles in tufts, combs with teeth accurately scaled, a Victorian breadboard with the word “BREAD" carved in relief, a “cut-throat" razor, and what is perhaps the world’s smallest violin with real catgut strings and a soundpost inside. What makes it even more remarkable is that there are no cast or moulded parts in any of David’s pieces, all are “scratch-built" using the finest materials available. He’s now in his med-seventies, and while he has slowed down production, he has no plans of putting aside his craft.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
