Tin Dioramas Decorated with Paper Cut Scenes and Hand-Painted Birds

Geninne D Zlatkis's work is an inspiration for many of us. I have been following her on Instagram for a long time and love her daily posts that take you to the wilderness of a desert, fresh blooms of spring, rustic objects, magical landscapes, and of course her enchanting artwork.

She recently made these dioramas which are sold out but I could not help but share them with you. These tin decorations are also known as tin nicho which simply means three dimensional display box. Inside each box the artist has created a scene cut out of paper and decorated it with birds that are sculpted in polymer clay or hand-painted paper. These pieces come with a door to protect it from the dust and with a hoop to hang.

You can follow Geninne on Instagram where she posts updates on her new products.

Jenny McCabe Carves Metal Plates To Create Beautiful Artwork


Jenny McCabe is a UK based artist and a printmaker with over 20 years of experience in the field of arts. When she was still studying Fine Art and printmaking at university, Jenny was making art for local businesses, schools and conducting workshops.

She creates metal plate etching by using aluminum plates that she then etches with copper sulphate. She hand cuts out her plates by using a jewellery saw and creates her own aquatints using enamel spray.

The artists' work is inspired by nature and often features birds and their fluid movements in her work. "The technical challenge of turning a piece of metal into a piece of art is driving the work. Drawing from memory and photographs she breathes life into the metal feathers with her decisive, quick, and energized mark-making."

Jenny creates artwork by hand in small editions from her home studio and at Iron Press Printmaking, Lancaster; a community print studio where she is also a technician and teacher.
