Visual Comfort: Tatsuya Tanaka

I have always had a thing for miniatures. My husband often laments the shelves full of collections of “petits objets” I keep in our home. Piles of rocks from a long hike on vacation, seashells from a day at the beach, or small iron animals that once lived on my grandmother’s entryway shelves. I keep it all. Tatsuya Tanaka takes small design to a whole other level with his miniature art installations. The details in his work, which mixes every day objects with small figurines he creates by hand, are mind blowing. He is cheeky and very creative. My kids love his stuff too. They are perfect for playing I-Spy.
