Life in miniature is so complicated!

I could never imagine, how much I will fall in love with miniatures. In the past 18 months, I worked with polymer clay. Started with jewellry, which I never really liked, mostly, because I don't really wear any of them. I had hard time, to push my creations in the border of an earring, which I would never wear, hard time with all the people, who asked for a gift for Christmas, for example. Why did I even start to make jewellry then? No reason, I think. When I bought my first set of Fimo, I made a lemon pie first. All the things that I could imagine was food, and that was the way I really wanted to go, but instead, I made hanging cats as earring, not even a bit of realistic. I hated it, soooo much, that my borders were so tight.

One day, I met someone, who is now my partner, and now uses my creations (most of the simple ones) as Shadow Box elements. That was the first time, when I had a chance, by a little force, to get out of the box of 'one-of-a-dozen' clayers, and make WHAT I LIKE TO- cakes, food, bread and baguette. Sometimes this year, I met a collector, who liked my vegetables- which were pretty large, never measured, and, let's just say, UGLY, that he asked a bunch of them for himself. I needed time, to get over the shock, that someone actually LIKES my work, even though they were UGLY. Yep, like childish playing around. But still, he's asking for more and more of them, and I'm still trying to get better in creating them.

What was the reason I bought my clay set? I still have no idea. I just dropped out of school, and had no idea, what to do with my life, no chance, to go to university or graduate, so I started to knead clay. Now my borders are tightening again. I want more, than creating a dozen of each piece, which could be waaay better, if I put just a bit more effort in creating them. That's why I start to write this blog. This might be a 'bit' selfish, but I need the pressure and the support of pulicity. That's how someone can improve skills. Or at least, for me, this is the way! I hope, that you'll enjoy, what you see, and return for news. Feel free to comment, ask questions, criticize, or whatever you'd like, I will read them all, and answer them all! Welcome, to my improving miniature world :)
