Kim Saulter of Healdsburg, California is known as a fine miniature sculptor who creates all kinds of things miniature using polymer clay. Ms. Saulter is also a confirmed miniature lover who has been collecting and creating her own miniature dollhouses, shadow boxes and other small buildings for more than
twenty years. The mother of five, she still found time to begin experimenting with polymer clay as a sculpting medium for miniatures about five years ago and has been busy ever since. Her favorite miniature buildings are shops that she fills with her handcrafted small items.
Kim has now become the author of a blog on miniatures where she provides updates on her latest projects so her many admirers can see what she is working on. Her main focus is on kitchens which are the perfect background for all the small pieces of art that she sculpts. There is incredible attention to detail in her miniatures and in her dollhouse settings. With a focus on shabby cottage interior design, the rooms just make you want to move right in and enjoy the delightful repasts of pies, cupcakes, fruit and blueberry muffins.
She loves miniature kitchens so much she even wrote a book about them called Miniature Kitchen Loves and Sweet Inspirations that depicts the most wonderful dollhouse kitchens you have ever seen filled with her own miniature
masterpieces including baked goods, utensils, food, cookbooks and even appliances large and small. The book is a wonderful inspiration if you are looking for ideas to decorate a dollhouse kitchen. The color photos make you want to go just that little bit farther to make dollhouse rooms come alive.
For further inspiration, you will want to check out her incredibly adorable miniature campers. Campers could be the next big thing in dollhouses – everybody is going to want one after seeing Ms. Saulter’s fun miniatures. Her dollhouse sized campers – (all of her creations are in the popular 1:12 scale) are pink, girly, vintage and filled with roses and polka dots. She has created a vintage trailer and a portable pastry wagon with miniature balloons! Even the hubcaps are pink.
