This picture is part of a collection David Frane photographed in France. Most of the photos he will be selling in his Main St. booth are from this collection.
From photos to doll houses-

than realistic.. They are filled with fish, butter-
flies, seagulls and leaves.
"I do the actual painting pretty fast-usually
in one day," Fattahi said. "But I can spend days,
maybe a week figuring it out in my head how it's
going to look, and all the details."
Fattahi's photographs have a distinctive style.
He particularly likes to work with nude figures
against overexposed broad white backgrounds.
DENISE SAVOIE and Kakie Tishman are stu-
dents in the Residential College. They are also
very skilled in the art of ceramics. Their booth
on East University will exhibit a wide selection
of mugs, planters, teapots, wine goblets and soap
dishes ranging in price from $3 to $25.
Ceramics is not an easy craft. A bowl or goblet
must go through a number of difficult stages be-
fore it is completed and the glazing process is
particularly trying. Most of their ceramicware is
glazed at least twice, with each batch of glaze
taking four days to mix. To develop the types of
glaze they wanted, Savoie and Tishman had to
experiment for six months.
"Things are always crumbling or breaking at
different stages," said Tishman. "Very often you
get a crack after something has been fired."
"AND," SAVOIE added, "sometimes you drop
things or sit on them."
Both Savoie and Tishman would like to make
a living at ceramics and to set up production
somewhere in Northern California, by the ocean.
But that, they suggested with self-mocking good
humor, is probably an impossible dream.
Economics major Dave Frane is a maker of
doll houses. These are not simply dollhouses for
dolls but scale models of different architectural
USING A CONVERTED slaughterhouse on W.
Liberty Rd. as his workshop, Frane makes Colon-
ials, American Gothics, Town Houses, St. Louis
"Row oHuses", and even log cabins. Frane also
offers optional variation on most models.
The Frane doll houses, made of one-fourth ma-
hogany veneer plywood, are rough when compar-
ed to the elaborate miniature houses found in
museums and collector's homes. Beyond hinging
"I make the house functional so that kids can
play with them," he said. "But they're also a*-
curate enough architecturally and scale-wise so
that collectors will buy them. Afterwards, they
can do their own custom work. It lets people put
their own personal stamp on the house."
Frane paused for a moment and added.
"There's also the cost. Highly detailed doll houses,
with furniture and everything can cost up to $14
thousand or more."
This 'conventional' style dall house is one of a variety of
models David Frane will be selling at his booth on Main St.
The house pictured costs about $30.
