Kari Bloom, 2014 Academy Instructor

This week we are introducing our fifth 2014 Academy instructor, I.G.M.A. Fellow Kari Bloom. Kari started in miniatures making arts and crafts furniture, and became well known especially for her Morris Chair. Several years ago she added Retro and Modern furniture and accessories and what she calls “Cocktail Furniture”. Her MacKensie-Childs furniture is magnificent.

To learn more about the MacKensie-Childs style go to www.mackensie-childs.com for a fun read.

Below are some of the pieces Kari has done in the past. We can hardly wait to see what she offers at the Academy in 2014. Kari’s web site is under maintenance at the moment, but it is at www.minitonminiatures.com
