I am lucky enough to own a lot of wonderful pieces by lots of talented miniature artists from all round the world which means I am often on the look out for the postman.
Today I received this fabulous chair by Kris Kompas and as I opened my parcel I knew this was a really special piece made by a very talented artist.
It is beautifully made and you can tell as you handle it that it has been made by someone who puts much love and care into her work.
The shape is fabulous and I have been lusting after a piece just like this after seeing Brae's chair in her fabulous haunted mansion.
Kris's work is in huge demand and it sells almost as soon as it is placed on the CDHM website but I saw a link on another site that a few pieces had gone on sale and I was delighted to see this chair still for sale.
Kris is not only very talented but also very generous and shares her knowledge and expertise via her blog 1inchminisbykris which is full of the most useful and clearly explained tutorials. Sadly this sharing is very rare at the moment so Kris's generosity is even more appreciated by miniature makers like myself.
Now I have to decide where to place this chair so it can be seen in all its glory. I have a character I think would feel right at home sitting on it.....perhaps in Flourish & Blotts or even the dragon room? Once my decorating is finished and I can get back in my workroom I can have a little play.
