Miniature Sculptures of Delicious Plants

Miniature Mexican Food, Work in Progress, Stéphanie Kilgast
Hello!

These days, I’ve been working on an art series around edible plants.
After a bit of thinking, I came up with a rather simple idea to hang the arrangements on a wall.
Basically some stainless wire integrated in the clay.
Because yes, the whole composition is only made of polymer clay. Pretty fun. I wanted to be certain the composition stays in place and doesn’t fall down.

For the melon composition I went with a faux wood in blue. but for the psychedelic pineapples I tried some textures and ended up with something that looks a bit like fabric. (hence a bit like a canvas)

I have two more planned on which I am working on. Two recipes, one will be mexican food and the other a veggie “bolognese”.
Basically just recipes I love doing at home.
Below how far I’ve come for the mexican food. A few things are still missing, like tomatoes and probably a sort of pan with the cooked food.
So far, food photography is a big inspiration and also my daily miniature veggie challenge.

The idea is to make a few more and I’ll try to contact art galleries with these.
If you have any good suggestions of galleries who would showcase that kind of work AND also be able to sell it, let me know below. So far my favorite galleries are all in the US… argh. Not a great idea I suppose.
Ah well, this is all so new to me, I’m just focusing on creating things and I’ll try to market them in a second step. Exciting new times ahead 🙂
