made by Teresa Martinez....



It has been a very nervous wait, but it has arrived and arrived safely....!!! I am referring to the lovely give-away I won from IGMA Artisan Teresa Martinez (of Spain). Wow...what can I say...? It is a delight, I love it! Teresa's detail is of course amazing, I cannot beginning to understand how many hours it would have taken to make such a piece....to make each and every little grape...unbelievable!! I have longed to own a piece of Teresa's beautiful work....this piece I shall cherish always.

Many Thanks to you Teresa.... www.tinyterminiatures.com

p.s....I hope my photographs have done justice to Teresa's work....it always unnerves me a little when photographing and publishing the work of others...??

They are certainly beautiful and very realistic. Congratulations you must have been thrilled to pieces to have won such a lovely piece of Teresa's.

I have still giggling about the cork in the photo. Perfect!

Your wonderful gift is so perfect...makes one want to pop one of the grapes into one's mouth....considering that I am sipping a glass of white wine as I write this, it seems appropriate!

Cheers and hugs

Missy said...

No worries about your photography - the grapes look luscious!

Lucky you - what a wonderful start to the year. And I think your photograph is lovely, it captures the texture of the basket and also the translucency of the grapes.
