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 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.

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

Winter and summer make-over for The Retreat dolls' house

23 January 2013

The Retreat is a smaller build which often inspires dolls' house makers to be adventurous.

Its size means it's relatively easy to get a great overall effect with less expense and less risk with the DIY!

Joanna Suchowińska, from Świdnica in Poland, sent us these images of her project which reached fruition at Christmas.

Here is the house and its grounds on display next to her full-sized Christmas tree.

Joanna tells us that the work was shared between herself, her boyfriend Jarosław Kreciński and daughter Julia.

She says: "I want to show you some photos of the doll’s house I’ve built with my  and daughter. These pictures shows this house in the summer and in the winter time.

"We’re hope this little home will be nice for you and will give you and people who loves your house ideas a lot of inspiration for building their own beautiful dolls' houses."

A winter wonderland in 1:12 scale!

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!”
