Tiny Obama family

Friday, June 12, 2009

Mini Obamas give a micro wave in British sculptor's work that fits in the eye of a needle:
The micro-sculptor's work is so small, you need a microscope to see it - it is invisible to the naked eye.

But Willard creates it all by hand in an astonishing process.

It takes him up to three months to create each amazing and unique sculpture, which usually sits within the eye of a needle or on a pin head.

The personal sacrifice involved in creating pieces is almost inconceivable. Willard enters a meditative state in which his heartbeat is slowed, allowing him to reduce hand tremors and sculpt between pulse beats.

Even the reverberation caused by traffic outside can affect Willard's work, so he often works through the night when there is minimal disruption.
