Tomo Tanaka, a self-described “miniature artist” has been crafting micro-replica sculptures of food and common household items since 2002. The sculptures are all made to scale – 1/12 of the original, according to the artist – and come to life primarily from clay and epoxy. The replicas are so lifelike that the artist has to include his hand in each photograph for scale and to also show that they’re not real.
Working under the brand Nunu’s House, the Kansai-based Tanaka is committed to creating his miniatures completely from scratch. In other words, no pre-existing products go into his lifelike micro-sculptures. His work was been featured in magazines and he’s often commissioned to create miniature displays. He’s even published two books on his work. You can keep up with the artist on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
