Description

Nationally renowned for his micro-miniature pots, this artist combs reference books for historic pots in museum collections, and reproduces them exactly in doll-house sizes.

The prize ribbons they earn are much larger than the pieces themselves.

This remarkable little train is chugging along, with a cliff behind it, just as the real trains did, as seen by the artist, from his Laguna Pueblo home.

His mother used to sell her pottery to tourists at the Laguna station, so this is a sentimental subject for him.

From front to back, each car of the train is hand fashioned from local, hand-gathered clay, and carefully decorated with natural clay slip and wild spinach paint.

The passenger cars are hollow; you can see right through from one window to the other side.

Each car is detachable, so you can rearrange the cars as you like!

The cliff along which the train rides is also hand made by the artist, of plaster of paris.

A fabulous find for miniature collectors, train buffs, everyone who appreciates outstanding skill, and  those who are strapped for display space.

Not every day you can fit an entire train on your shelf!
