Japanese Craftsman Kiyomi Designs Mesmerizing Miniature Antique Furniture
Japanese artist Kiyomi specializes in meticulously handcrafting miniature replicas of antique furniture. This ancient art of miniaturization in Japan, seen in bonsai trees and compact mobile phones, finds new expression in Kiyomi’s work.
Despite raising two children, she dedicates early mornings to her passion. Using paper, wire, and perspex, she crafts detailed 18th-century scenes, including vintage cabinets and chairs with an antique-industrial charm. Her collection also features sewing treasures, a tiny boutique with shoes and hats, and a miniature bakery adorned with delectable pastries. Kiyomi extends the boundaries of miniature art with her interior design-inspired dollhouses.
