Miniature Artisan Sylvia Roundtree Miniature Shoes

Sylvia Roundtree Miniature Shoes. Sylvia Roundtree of The Dolls Cobbler is one of the worlds finest miniature shoe artisans. I met Sylvia 8 years ago at the Dealer Miniatures Artisan show in Aurora, Ohio.  I remember being blown away by her intricate shoe creations all masterfully rendered in real leather.  An accomplished artisan, Sylvia is a prestigious Guild Fellow in the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and is in the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts Academy of Honor. NAME is an educational, non-profit organization dedicated to serving the miniature collector and builder.

Sylvia works out of her home studio in Berlin, MD.  Striving for realism,  she has a unique method of rendering her creations. Sylvia uses thin kid skin leather and card stock. The look of each shoe or boot is based on how she skillfully cuts and fashions the material. Each one is different, which adds to their charm. Her work is authentic and extremely realistic. The technique she uses is very different from other miniature artisans, which often base their miniature shoes on a piece of resin. Sylvia has mastered the art of shoe making, but also makes miniature luggage and some accessories.  Besides miniature shoes and boots in an array of styles and color, she  also has done impressive commission work. One well known commission is the hand made miniature suitcase luggage Sylvia created for the movie “Stuart Little”

Originally from Hudson, Ohio Sylvia started out as a school librarian in the Cuyahoga Valley and had a life long love of miniatures. She started making miniatures as a hobby over 50 years ago has been a full time working artist for many years now.

Because her shoes sell out quickly as soon as they arrive, we have only a few pieces of Sylvia’s work in stock at the moment.  If you sign up for our Dollhouses and More newsletter, you will receive early notification of not only Sylvia Roundtree but all of our miniature artisan newest arrivals.
