What does “Petit Plat” mean?
It literally means “Little Plate” in French, but more figuratively translates to “a nice meal.”dailymini-Patisserie_Modern_Framboise

How did you first get started in miniatures?
In the summer of 2007, when still a student, I failed to find a summer job and went to stay with my parents. After two days, I realized I had to spend my time doing something crafty, so I looked on the Internet for a new craft or art of some kind. At that point in time, I had already tried various activities, such as beading, painting, knitting, and drawing. Being creative was a big part of my life.

What types of miniatures do you make these days?
I specialize in making realistic food miniatures which I then turn into all kinds of fun jewelry to wear such as necklaces, earrings, and jewelry clips. I even have a “Gifts for Guys” section in my store where you can find mini food cufflinks and tie clips.

I primarily use high-quality polymer clay. In order to turn a plain little block of clay into something extraordinary, I have tons of random tools that I’ve been collecting for years and years. These help me capture just the right look, shape, style, and texture in my art.

What types of miniatures do you make?
Right now, I primarily make food miniatures and cute charms. I’m currently considering other kinds of miniatures such as furniture, household items, and more.

I frequently use polymer clay for my miniatures, but sometimes I will use other materials such as paper, metal, and wood.

How long have you been working with miniatures?
From 2010 to 2013, I created super simple miniatures out of air dry clay. In November 2013, I began experimenting with polymer clay which led to much more detailed and smaller miniatures.
