PAGE 8 THE KATONAH LEWISBORO TIMES Opinion THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 2020
Afew weeks ago, I attended a READING,
wonderful poetry and art re- WRITING &
ception at the Norwalk Public CHOCOLATE
Library. On my way out of the library,
I was drawn to an enchanting display KIM
of miniature rooms created by minia- KOVACH
turist Vance Alexander. I was amazed
at the detail and craftsmanship pre-
sented in each distinctive scene.
One of my favorites was a 17th century Venetian Style Apothecary
which displayed rows of tiny clear bottles on wooden shelves and a
miniature mortar and pestle on a wooden counter. I learned that the
tiny bottles are made out of resin and lled with dried herbs and spices.
Another of my favorite rooms was the Venetian Music Room complete
with a decoratively painted miniature harpsichord, cello, violin, French
horn, and tiny music stand.
After a long career in architectural and interior design, Vance began
crafting miniature rooms less than two years ago. A self-described “fa-
natic for correct detail and scale,” the rst room he created is called e

Vance does research for the di erent time periods and applies meticu-
lous detail in bringing each room to life. In the room entitled Grandpa’s
Barn, the decorative accents include a basket of eggs, a replica of a tiny
cast iron stove, tiny broom and rake, and a selection of itty bitty gourds.
