The Delft Blue KLM miniature traditional Dutch Houses

This is an acrylic case made for a customer who travels a lot!
These ceramic Dutch houses are presented to passengers of
KLM - Royal Dutch Airlines.
Each house is numbered and corresponds to an actual house on the canals
in Holland. These Delft Blue miniature traditional Dutch house are filled with Dutch gin. 
The blue sky and white clouds are painted on the reverse of the acrylic background before the shelves are "welded" to the face and the top , bottom and sides are enclosed. A full cover of acrylic is attached to the face to protect the contents.

Vintage Collectible Post Cards Presented as Fine Art

An art director and friend has had me frame his valuable vintage post-card collection over many years. They are hanging in his beautiful study.  This collection spans time from the early 1800s through the 1940s.  All of these pieces are in mint condition and the framing I do preserves them while they are able to be viewed and enjoyed.


Let's admit it!
If  ゴジラ doesn't look like a man in a rubber suit,
then he's not the real thing!

Letting 2 strangers into the house was a big mistake. I was told everything I wanted to hear, you know, stuff about respecting the property of others, obeying house rules, keeping their paws off of what didn't belong to them, etc.  Their unwitting accomplice I cannot blame.  Always one to "get up for anything", I know this person's intentions were pure. So take a look at these "before and after" pictures but don't tell me that after hours of sticking my fingers together this irreplaceable rice wine
"tokkuri" is now "un-broken".
