Incredibly Detailed Miniature Worlds Inside Antique Pocket Watches

A few years ago Gregory Grozos had the idea of making an entire tiny world which a person can carry on him or her and then he started developing ways to do exactly that. He tries to make each work as detailed and complete as a tiny world would need to be in order to be called a world. All the themes and ideas are his own and many of his works can be broadly categorized as steampunk, fantasy and whimsical in style. He pays a lot of attention to fine detail, trying to bring to a harmonious combination many tiny bits and materials that come from a variety of unlikely sources. His work is very painstaking and most pieces take days or even weeks to complete. Each carefully composed trinket is made of countless individually placed elements such as tiny figurines, little cogs, and miniature trees. Grozos believes that art is a field of human culture which has tremendous power in affecting people, so he tries to bring out what is positive, bright and wholesome in his art, making it into something which can have the capacity of benefiting, inspiring and helping others. Seeing things in that way had opened up a completely new field of ideas, creativity and an enthusiasm to improve Gregory’s skills, techniques, and knowledge. You can see many more of Grozos’ miniature worlds on his website and even purchase some on Etsy.
