Her motto revolves around wanting everyone to feel nature close by, even more, if you do not have the opportunity to have plants in your day-to-day life. She aims to portray a miniature size of real-life plants such as monstera deliciosa all the way to miniature watermelon peperomia and alocasia zebrina while having everyone enjoy the beauty found in nature's green plants.

Handmade Miniature Clay Plants

The most amusing and admirable characteristic of all of Astrid Wilk's miniature clay creations is her ability to hand make them and turn them into never-before-seen pieces. The amount of meticulous work and delicacy worked in each piece makes her work extremely valuable and differentiated in the clay market and further competitors. Have you ever seen such detailed miniature clay plant pieces? They feature eye-catching miniature lines, leaves, and a mix of colors to actually portray the plant as lively and real as possible. All of her miniature clay plants are made from oven-baked polymer clay, and every leaf pattern is made using the caning technique.

July Mini Fun Miniatures

To make the interaction with her followers even more special and summer fun, Astrid Wilk decided to make her #julyminifun miniature clay plant pieces a trend and it actually worked. Each day during July she has managed to host, along with @vintagedollhouseshop a different miniature clay plant for the day.

The purpose of doing the #julyminifun trend was because Astrid noticed the Instagram algorithm no longer pushes photos, and rather hashtags are becoming more and more irrelevant for the reach. Her miniature clay plant content has definitely become a trend under this hashtag. If you want to see a full mini plant Instagram filled with unique content, make sure to visit her account.
