Alchemist's Lab


This is one of the first miniature scenes I ever did, c. 1999. It’s the only one I kept through a couple of huge moves.

I made the box and furniture, and crammed in lots of little things I imagine a medieval scientist might like.

I collected tiny plants, shells, and bones; and made books and scrolls.

The chandelier is constructed from a bracelet and a pair of earrings; there are lots of beads, charms, and jewelry findings, and even a few purchased minis.

Some alchemists really did have preserved gators (or possibly crocs), sold to them as dragons

It lights up! The fire used to glow, too, but needs a new bulb or something; I’ll have to take out a bunch of stuff to figure out what’s wrong.

I had this on display in my office when I worked at a lab; the scientists would show it off to visitors.
