Miniature Masterworks: Jeffrey Guéno

Miniature Masterworks: Jeffrey Guéno

Jeffery G. Guéno often recreates fifteenth-century Italian maiolica as well as English and Dutch delft, but he has worked in a variety of styles and time periods. He usually works in 1:12 scale, but he has also made 1:6 scale pieces when there is too much detail to scale down. Guéno uses auction catalogs and museum collections to create authentic reproductions.

Guéno is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017. He will be giving a gallery talk about his work in the T/m collection and the inspiration behind it on Sunday, September 17 at 11:30 am.

Miniature Masterworks: Daniela Kiefhaber

Daniela Kiefhaber’s figures are unique pieces of art; each has a personality and a story. She hand-sculpts her figures in porcelain, creating jointed figures so that they move like human beings. Their garments are historically researched and display embroidered details.

Miniature Masterworks: Patricia Richards

Patricia Richards sews full- and fine-scale seventeenth- and eighteenth-century schoolgirl samplers. She isolates essential elements from the pieces she researches and adapts them to tell a story on a much smaller canvas. Richards has also been fascinated by stumpwork, a seventeenth-century technique involving dimensional embroidery.

Miniature Masterworks: Jane Graber

Jane Graber was a full-time potter at the Sauder Museum in Archbold, Ohio, where she made her first miniatures—gifts for the children who were visiting the museum. She has been making traditional Early American pottery in 1:12 scale since 1981. Her original designs are inspired by traditional motifs with techniques adapted from her experience with full-scale pottery.
