Miniature what? As you know I got thousands of wood carvers on my pages and I know thousands more who carve various things...I need more details...folk, caricatures, realism, or etc. Plus what form of medium, clay, plastic, wood, stone? Right now I am carving fish they are any where from 3/4 inch to 4 inches...but I would not call it miniature. I do have non site friend that carves with a high power micro scope so miniature can get super small. But the best carvers in miniature detail are the ones who make those plastic things with the usage of Z brush computer design. Also those who carve netsuke (sorry not spelled right) is a beautiful form of miniature? As I say I know tons of artist....digging them out of the wood work will be the issue....and make take some time.

Beggers can't be choosers Di. It's really hard to find mini's that aren't plastic. Stone is to heavy.

I'd love something by you of course but not sure my checkbooks balance would cover it.
Octopus maybe? Calla Lily, hermit crab......praying mantis.

Hey I am affordable to only people treat me nice. You may have to wait although...as I need to work on the two master works and a few commissions, but when I get bored and time ... I like playing with small works....you just have to wait although. I barter my work also.... I will contact you on the PM and settle things up when I have time.

Works for me. I'm in no hurry. And if you have ever seen anything that I do that you'd like I'd be happy to barter.

Actually I do have a idea for you that you might like. I'll p.m. you.
