Today the Department of Miniature Marvels explores the work of Australian artist Kendal Murray, who uses every day objects as the foundation for creating playful miniature mixed-media sculptures. She builds tiny, vibrant scenes that take place inside and atop found objects such as makeup compacts, coin purses, bottles, jars, and teapots. The human figures that Murray uses in her pieces are so very wee that she uses tweezers to dip in the in glue before delicately placing them into the dreamlike narrative scenes.

The artist says, “The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts.”

Visit the Arthouse Gallery website to view more of Kendal Murray’s whimsical miniature scenes.

This stunning installation of 888,246 red ceramic poppies was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper in commemoration of the centennial of Britain’s involvement in World War I. Entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, each flower represents a British or Colonial military fatality.

This staggering installation is a work in progress, with the ceramic pippies being planted by volunteers in the dry moat that surrounds the Tower of London. The planting process began a few weeks ago and will continue throughout the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11, 2014.

Visit the Historic Royal Palaces website to learn more about this moving project. You can also follow the progress of the volunteer planters by following the #TowerPoppies on Twitter.

In his series, The Good Badlands, photographer Guy Tal seeks to show us that though it is often hidden, and may only appear briefly, there is delicate and subtle beauty in abundance for any viewer with patience and desire.
