These Teeny Tiny Food Sculptures Are Impeccably Detailed

What is this, food for ants?!

Unfortunately, it isn’t, but these tiny sculptures are pretty darn realistic. The  miniature food sculptures are made with clay and only a needle, chalk, a rock, and a razor blade to sculpt them into mini masterpieces, taking up to three hours to complete.

Breakfast the size of a penny, pizza the size of a thumbnail, and a full Thanksgiving dinner that could fit in the palm of your hand are only some of the masterpieces this artist creates. Going only by her first name, Kim, she’s displays all of her miniature cheese boards, meals, and sweets on her DeviantArt page and personal website. For anyone with a dollhouse that needs some tasty meals, you can also purchase her creations on Etsy.

Up Close This Looks Like Normal Sushi, But You Won’t Believe How Tiny It Really Is

tiny-sushi

It’s hard to argue that sushi is the most filling of dishes, but this is just ridiculous.

According to Reuters, a chef in Tokyo Japan has mastered the delicate art of making miniature sushi out of single grains of rice. And we’re not talking loose bubbles of roe over sloppily shaved seaweed flakes. We mean fully-formed, microscopic egg and tuna filets, cups of seaweed-wrapped sea urchin, and slivers of octopus tentacle, all deftly perched atop rice grain “beds” smaller than the chopsticks you’d eat them with.

The process took chef Hironori Ikeno of Nohachi about 13 years to perfect. “I actually started the whole thing from a joke with a customer whom I served a miniscule sushi to and I started to wonder how tiny could I make it,” Ikeno told Reuters.

Supposedly the little fishies still have a lot of flavor despite their size. Good to know, especially for the next time your Legos are looking for a sweet All-You-Can-Eat.

Wearable Drinking Glasses Are the Boozier, Adult Version of Ring Pops

2

I miss Ring Pops. Do you miss Ring Pops?   They were the perfect size, a perfect snack, and never ever got on your clothes or required nuisances like a spoon. Having tried to navigate many a party with a cup in hand and a friend, snack, or stolen inflatable shark in the other, having a hands-free cup has been something I’ve only dreamed of.

Well apparently, I wasn’t the only one. Designer Merve Kahraman has developed a selection of wearable mini drinking glasses, named the “Seduction Series.”

According to Kahraman, “these unique items of glassware and serving accessories are intended to sensitize people to the expectation of complex olfactory experiences by using specific gestures.”  Oh. . . I’m supposed to smell my alcohol seductively first? Sure, let’s see how that works out. Glug Glug Glug.

No matter how you use them, these fancy ring drinks are pretty darn gorgeous, and I would feel quite classy walking into a party, sauntering up to the bar, and asking for a taste of fine liqueur poured directly into my handy dandy (get it?!?!) glass.  It just might beat a Ring Pop.

World’s Tiniest Pizza

After years of celebrating the biggest and nastiest foods in the game, it’s always refreshing to show off something on the other end of the spectrum. In the case of wonderful food artist Jessica Hlavac, she’s created this incredibly miniature pizza. So miniature, that a slice of fits comfortably on a quarter. A truly remarkable creation from a truly remarkable artist.
