Victoria Morozova creates fine-scale furniture, focusing on the Art Nouveau style. She especially enjoys the challenge of marquetry, bringing to life a sketch with the help of wood grain, texture, and color. Morozova considers reproducing furniture pieces a dialogue between herself and the original artists, taking inspiration from the beauty of the design and transferring it to a smaller scale.

Morozova is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.

 Mark Murphy’s miniature making began with an interest in the forms of the functional, classic furniture models. Although he began with Shaker pieces, he has expanded to other early American styles: William and Mary, Queen Anne, Pennsylvania Dutch, and Arts and Crafts. Murphy has collaborated with many fellow fine-scale artists to create pieces that work well in a setting alongside other miniature works

Kerri Pajutee is motivated by the desire to replicate the beauty and energy of animals in 1:12 scale. She developed a technique to combine polymer clay with layers of natural fibers: wool, alpaca, cashmere, and silk. This combination allows Pajutee to infuse her art with character and expression.
