Melbourne-based architecture student Emily Boutard quit her job as a corporate lawyer two years ago to pursue her passion of making tiny houses and furniture. Her miniature creations are as detailed as their bigger counterpart, using a variety of materials and methods while taking inspiration from 19th century pattern books and historical text.
There is this moment when people see a well constructed miniature: a surprised drawing-in of breath, a disbelief that something so small could look so real. This is what I chase. I make all things small, whether it is furniture, rooms or buildings. I have been developing my skills and resources over many years now having access to an extensive library of architectural styles, miniature production methods and interior decoration resources. I use a variety of materials and methods, depending on what the particular miniature requires. This includes building from scratch, repurposing kits, or just acquiring beautiful small objects.See more of Emily Boutard's work on Instagram.
