I make miniature food and ceramics. I make mins with my passion.
When I was a little girl in Japan, my mother read me a story of a magical chest of drawers. When the drawers were opened, each revealed a beautiful scene.

I was so impressed by this story and the pictures in my mind that I wanted to recreate them through miniatures--scenes just small enough to fit into a drawer.

Now, I make miniatures of foods--Japanese sushi, fancy pastry, and fruits--as well as miniature ceramics and miniature reproductions of Japanese scenes--sushi shops, mochi shops, yakitori shops. Some of my miniatures can be seen at the Angels Attic Museum in Santa Monicica CA.
I uploaded those mini's pictures at Facebook as Asako Saito.
