These Miniature Sculptures by Philly-Based Artist Are Too Cute for Words

The latest objects to get the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids treatment? These adorable — and crazily collectible — sculptures by Philly artist Mackenzie McAlpin. The precious miniatures are recreations of some of our favorite normal-sized objects (think pancakes and syrup). They’re the best kind of nicknack because they don’t take up too much space. Are they exceedingly functional? Not quite, but they still pack a visual punch when tidily clustered or sprinkled upon a shelf.

Select a sampling of the quirky minis from the recently-launched site of McAlpin. It’s stocked to the brim with scaled-down mugs, planters and tacos. (So. Good.) Smitten yet? We’re already brainstorming desk arrangements. 

The Details: (clockwise) Soft Pretzels, $20; Wonderbread Girl with Cactus, $30; Hands with Nail Polish, $40.
