About this time of year, we’re wishing the courgettes/zucchini piling up in our kitchens were the size of Vicky Guile’s polymer miniature versions. This UK artist’s veggies are only an inch long.
Vicky’s bowl of artichoke, aubergines, cauliflower and red onions looks fresh from the garden.
Those of us who started out making miniatures with our kids have a special fondness and admiration for those who can fool our eyes at 1:12 scale. See more on Facebook (NJD Miniatures).

Good to see Vicky’s miniatures featured especially as she’s from this side of the pond!
Perfection! I have done minis LOOOOONG ago, and these are breathtaking, especially compared to my crude efforts! (Well, it WAS the 70’s!! We’ve all learned a lot since then!)
(I remember clay being so hard to find (only at dollhouse miniatures shows) and expensive (about $3 a 2 oz. bar back in the 70’s, so what — maybe $5-6 now??) that we used little wads of aluminum foil in the centers of I inch pumpkins to make the clay last longer!) Ah memories! ;^)

I have to admit I am a sucker for well done miniatures–and these are some of the most convincing I’ve seen in a long time…Bravo, Vicky!
Wow, it’s look amazing, like real
Love these 🙂 So well made too!

Wow, seriously I’m blushing! Thank you so very much for the feature, I was wondering why traffic to my FB page had increased, now I know why, thanks again PCD and to everyone for your wonderful comments!
Look at that onion!!! You are just amazingly talented.
