The Teensy Canvas

As some of you well know, I have a minor obsession with miniature things. Here, in no particular order, are a few more artists to add to the list of those working really really small.

Willard Wigan carved St Bartholomew's church into a single grain of sand and placed it in the eye of a needle. It is too small to be seen without the aid of a microscope.



Lorenzo Duran works carvings around the vein structure of leaves.

Dalton Ghetti sculpts object on the lead tips of pencils.

I've posted about Slinkachu's little people before, but they deserve a second mention.

If national art competitions show us anything, it is that the bigger the artwork, the more public attention it garners and the higher prices it can demand at sale. Still, it has to be said that working small can be even more challenging.
