Thomas Natseway, a large burly man with matching hands, is nationally renowned for his micro-miniature pots.
He combs reference books for historic pots in museum collections and reproduces them exactly, in doll-house sizes.
This three-part canteen is a replica of the kind used by farmers of the pre-historic Tularosa culture, in New Mexico
Every detail is accurate, and the clay is handmade and hand formed, just like the originals.
The painting is done with one hair of a brush – as Tom says, “Very carefully” – using traditional, natural colors.
This is the ultimate for miniature collectors, and would beautifully adorn a southwestern dollhouse.
