Thumbnail items you didn’t know you had to see


Watch Best in Miniature, streaming for free on Gem of Radio-Canada from February 11.

There’s something so calming about watching people make miniatures. The detail and love poured into each article is clear and requires a patient and methodical approach. In The best in miniature, 11 artists do it all, but, you know, faster – it’s a competition show, after all. And these people have talent! From small pottery to small glassware to small animals, they make everything in 1:12 scale. Here are some of our favorite miniature items from the show.
