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!

We think that their work is absolutely stunning. Beautiful and thought provoking, their work is a testament to just how wonderful miniatures can be.
Maria João Fonseca from Portugal has spent some time building an atmospheric Christmas Village.
She’s decided to share it with The Dolls House Emporium, so we decided to share it with YOU!
She says: “At Christmas time and since a couple of years ago, I’ve started to build a Christmas Village, and I build the small houses, but the key elements and small details, are all from Dolls House Emporium.
“This will grow every year, but would like to share it with you.
“I also have a big house and I’ve already bought some furniture and decorations and it will be a life project I guess!”
