I would like to introduce you to a lovely lady called Hazel Voice who I have corresponded with for quite a while now and who has just informed me of the wonderful news that she has at long last fulfilled a dream of opening her own little miniature museum where she lives in South Africa.
Hazel opened the doors to "Hazels's World Of Miniatures" for the first time last Friday and is thrilled.
Hazel says, "After making and collecting miniatures for the last 20 odd years, I have ended up with quite a large collection. When I was given a collection of vintage miniatures, my dream of having a little miniature museum had to become a reality.
I sat on the idea for several years until I discovered KT Miniatures site and realized that my vintage miniatures are way too precious to be stuck in a cupboard.
I love the challenge of creating scenes in awkward spaces, hence most of my work is set in old mantle clock cases, hat and cigar boxes – in fact anything that is unusual.
On show is a collection of hand crafted miniature scenes in the 1/12th scale, displayed in old clock cases and an array of old and new boxes, miniature houses and street scenes. Also displayed are some very rare and beautiful vintage miniatures made by Tri-ang, Pit-a-Pat, Barrett & Son and the like."
