Each year, the Show brings together more than 100 U.S. and international artisans and dealers, including a number of I.G.M.A. Artisans and Fellows. They offer collectors unique, well-crafted 1-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/4-inch scale miniatures from around the world.

At the Show - Furniture and Paintings

Brian "Rainbow Hand" and Kathy Tepper launched their stylish and theatrical 1:12 scale Kaleidoscope Collection at the 2010 Good Sam Show. It proved to be an instant success. www.rainbowhandandkathy.com

Very labor-intensive, each one-of-a-kind Kaleidoscope grouping is stunning and exquisitely executed. Brian meticulously hand-paints the furniture with colorful fanciful designs. For the upholstery, Kathy harmoniously combines an impressive range of vividly colored patterns and textures. They enhance each grouping with unusual accessories. They have attended Good Sam the last six years.

For awhile now, the Teppers have been making Rustic European and Extravagant Castle Furnishings. The pieces have an old world warm and charm that continues to be popular with collectors. To compliment this line, Brian creates original miniature oil paintings on canvas with an emphasis on sailing ships and chickens (roosters and hens). These paintings add considerable charm when integrated into a scene.
