Ericka Van Horn's fantastic jars:)

I don't think there is anyone on the blogland that doesn't know works of this highly talented Lady. But if there is someone who hasn't seen Ericka's miniatures you should be visiting her blog before you read this post to the end.;D

Funny thing, I was very lucky to be fast enough to order three of her fab jars. Got four and among them two I didn't ordered. Ericka explained to me that the one missing I ordered, cracked so she sent replacements. I was so surprised and so happy I have more than I ordered because I absolutely adore Ericka's works.:) And her miniatures were probably the first magical miniatures I ever saw.:) So here they are one by one, enjoy.:)
My absoulte favourite:)

Can you see the mermaid?

Love metal stand and the colour of this potion:)

Beautiful jug:)

Still waiting for the last jar to arrive, hope it won't be lost, please keep your fingers crossed.:) Thank you! :)
Thank you so much Ericka!!!:D

Miniatury Ericki Van Horn były chyba pierwszymi "czarodziejskimi" miniaturami jakie w życiu zobaczyłam. Nic dziwnego, że stałam się z miejsca fanem jej prac. Ostatnio miałam szczęscie zamówić 3 z jej magicznych słoiczków, co dziwne, przyszły do mnie 4, z czego 2 kompletnie niezamawiane... Okazało się, że jeden ze słoiczków popękał i Ericka przysłała mi 2 inne zamiast tego jednego. Trzymajcie kciuki, żeby dotarł do mnie w tej przedswiątecznej pocztowej zawierusze jeszcze jeden.:)

I agree! Her work is just wonderful!!! She has a great imagination too. So clever and I see most things have been sold. I am sure new pieces will be along shortly.

Thanks so much for posting my bottles:-) I think my workroom was cold the night after I used the resin. I had about 3 bottles break or pull away from the glass.. I sometimes worry they will break in transit. You never know what temps the packages will be subject too:-)I think it is SOOOO cool my minis travel all over the world..

I love her work too :). Had been resisting since I have not started on my poshier houses but could not any more when I saw her new books :).

Glenda said...

Ericka's work has been a long-term favourite of mine! Your pieces from her are brilliant - aren't her embryos and specimens in jars fascinating?

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Lainie! Love it too! :D

The Old Maid said...

Hey Sans, hope you will show your purchases soon!:D

The Old Maid said...

Oh yes, Glenda! I wanted to have just one dragon's embro for years ;D

Wow Ewa they are nice. i love the test tube on the stand best too. I was lucky enough to get and eye ball jar from Ericka, it is my favorite of all my jars. Can't wait to see these with all your others together.

The Old Maid said...

Oj tak Zosiu! Niesamowite! :) Moim zdaniem sporo miniatur Ericki zasługuje na to właśnie słowo! ;)Cieszę się, że Ci się podobają!!:D

Arestrea said...

Wymiękłam... ta probóweczka i słoiczki to najprawdziwsze małe dzieła sztuki!

The Old Maid said...

Prawda? Też tak uważam! :D
