Dramtais Personae # 3

Lady Mary Saquee is noted for her frequent improvisation in mid-performance, possibly inspired by the case of Dom Perignon which she keeps in her dressing room. This inspires some anxiety on the part of her fellow-performers.

News of the Tiny: I got a strange email which I am going to investigate further, apparently a project of the Elsewhere Public Works Agency, who did this miniature art installation in San Francisco's Mission District.

Here are tiny world pincushions by artist Mimi Kirchner

And here is a link to a small scale sculpture by jeweler Bruce Metcalf...if George Grosz had been a metalsmith...

A friend told me he saw something on TV about someone doing tiny street-installations (miniature ships afloat in a puddle, tiny men climbing up dogshit on a ladder (don´t know who, where, when unfortunately...)

Oh Lady Mary Saquee - I am your biggest fan! Beautiful work!

I have been a fan of Mimi Kirchner's works for a long time. And thanks for the introduction to Bruce Metcalf's work.

Here's a link to Steve Tomashek's website. He's an artist from this area that you'll appreciate. He makes wonderful miniature wooden sculptures and also creates miniature menageries with his creations. http://home.earthlink.net/~stomashek/
