Families of Tiny Ghosts Haunt Miniature Coffin Houses and Graveyard Gardens
June 16, 2023
There’s plenty of spirit to be found inside Blacklillybee’s miniature coffins. Nestled inside the tiny wooden caskets, centimeter-wide ghosts roam through Victorian-style dollhouses with gravestone gardens, cushy furniture, and gilded frames holding spectral family photos. Each character is made from polymer clay and takes on the classic white bedsheet appearance as they float upstairs or rest by an empty fireplace. The coffins are currently sold out, but keep an eye on the artist’s Instagram for updates.
