Bet you didn’t know this was a miniature! – Lord of The Rings

26 September 2018

We love all things miniature here at The Dolls House Emporium. This week on the blog we take you behind the scenes of one of our favourite film series and show you the incredible miniatures (or ‘bigatures’, as they were nicknamed, due to the sheer size of some of them!) created by the amazing WETA Workshop team for the Lord of The Rings film trilogy.

WETA Workshop were not only responsible for the incredible miniatures made for the films, they also made 48,000 items across six departments, covering a multitude of Middle Earth cultures and races.

Here are some of the beautifully detailed models created by the incredibly talented WETA team of multi-skilled craftsmen and artists. Enjoy!

We love her miniature creations so much that we thought we’d share some of our favourite images here on the blog.

The Strange Snow Globes of Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz

8 January 2018

We love all things miniature here at The Dolls' House Emporium, and now that we're fully in the depths of winter, we thought it'd be a great opportunity to look at some of our favourite miniature wintry artworks: the snow globes of artists Walter Martin and Paloma Muñoz.

The husband and wife team have been creating miniature works of art inside snow globes for more than 15 years. They use these tiny spaces to create scenes that are surreal, beautiful, touching, funny and sometimes sinister.

You can find out more, and see a showcase of their work in this lovely video.



We've selected some of our favourite pieces of their work to show you here. Enjoy!


Traveler 300, 2014 & Traveler 306, 2014


Traveler 286, 2012 & Sleepy Head II, 2016


Traveler 78 at Night, 2003 & Traveler 290, 2012


Traveler 153 at Night, 2005 & Traveler 170 at Night, 2005


Traveler 48 at Night, 2004 & Traveler 79 at Night, 2016


Traveler 186 at Night, 2006 & Traveler 126 at Night, 2004


Traveler 40 at Night, 2006 & Traveler 293 at Night, 2003

As well as these amazing snow globes, the duo have also created a number of miniature panoramic scenes.


The Orchard at Night, 2005


The Movers, 2011


Pretty Birds, 2011

We think that their work is absolutely stunning. Beautiful and thought provoking, their work is a testament to just how wonderful miniatures can be.
