for most of us, mornings are not usually the best part of the day. even more so in this lockdown. the repeated snooze buttons, the 5 minutes more and then some more alarms. till you finally manage to drag yourself out of bed.
that’s something japanese artist and designer – manami sasaki has been trying to change. during the lockdown, she came up with a series titled ‘stay home’ in which she uses bread as her canvas to create stunning pieces of food art.
each with themes that are as diverse as japanese zen gardens to ikko tanaka’s 200th anniversary of sharaku going right up to the paintings of utagawa kunisada.
she says, that the idea came to her during the lockdown when she had a bit more time and became more intentional about what she ate. it was then that she learnt to value the rhythm of the day.
“my mind was aligned with the richness that comes from taking the time to do this.”
in her unique food art creations, manami, uses a butter knife, sewing needles and different food elements. here are few of her food art creations that caught our eye. you can follow her work on her instagram handle.
