Modern Dolls House Lights of Peter Tucker Images

Peter started to concentrate on modern miniature structures about 10 years ago, primarily from the Art Deco period to today. He knows that in 20th and 21st century room settings, lighting plays a vital role where careful selection and placement of lighting can make all the difference to the success of the scene. It quickly became apparent that if he wanted suitable lighting and furniture to go with the modern rooms he was making, then he would have to make them himself. Most of his furniture and lights are of his own design and tend to be one of a kind.

Tracking down suitable white LEDs was not an easy job in 2002. More recently Peter uses dozens of tiny LEDs to bathe his room boxes and scenes with indirect and reflected lighting, all of which could not be used if access to bulbs for replacing would be required. Because some of these LEDs are so tiny he is able to put lights inside furniture like display shelving using very fine wire which when painted over almost disappers from view.
