Masako Sharra is attending Miniature Masterworks as an Emerging Artist, a special designation recognizing new and rising talent in fine-scale miniature making. After moving to the United States from Tokyo, Sharra found an admiration for the beauty of wood and the history of furniture, but was unsure of her ability to make full-size furniture. Sharra has been making miniature furniture that respects the beautiful details of the original craftsman’s techniques.

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