Chocolate Museum Fossils & Incredible Edible Art

6 Jun

So excited to be blogging again (!!!) and what better way to start than by sharing the work of  an incredible food artist and fine artist Sarah Hardy. If I tell you she gained her skills in in wax-work museums, and as a internationally recognised fine artist, you can guess the quality of the edible fossil pieces Essex based Sarah accurately reproduces in the finest dark, milk & white Belgium Chocolate.

These incredible museum quality edible fossils are created with intricate casting and hand-painted detail – creating ultimate collectors items not novelty chocolate. With the largest fossil – the Megalodon Tooth – weighing in at 120g and a whopping 14cm long. 2 hours are spent hand finishing each one to the finest detail with a 11cm long T Rex Tooth and collectors box of 16 separate fossils also in the collection.

IT GETS EVEN BETTER…  Sarah has even created edible decapitated human heads from cake for international film companies and even a raw turkey cake which went on to be an online viral hit, food artist. Now she (& I) are dreaming of the day she gets to create a life sized T Rex Skull in chocolate.

A gallery of some more of her work is below – remember that all of the below are cakes or in the case of the anatomical heart chocolate…

Pearls & Swine

19 Nov

Affordable, awesome, innovative British millinery and affordable to boot. Don’t ask me to choose my favourite piece as I can’t. Pearl and Swine well worth checking out.

Burger Sweatshirt

1 Oct

Mr Gugu & Miss Go sell a range of incredible printed sweatshirts. A spin off shop from their massively random Sexy Sweaters blog that combines sweatshirts, great imagery & photoshop to make addictive browsing. 45 Euro these novelty sweatshirts are so random, and utterly brilliant, I have ordered the burger one to replace December’s traditional Christmas jumper. I secretly want the weed one as well despite the fact it is veering perilously close to bad taste and has ‘please stop and search me’ written all over it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Underground Tube Tent

29 Jul

Great PR here from Firebox with the timing of their Tube Tent – one of those products it would be worth stocking for the online traffic driving alone. This approach is something they do a fair bit with POA products such as Project Utopia and the bullshit of the million pound pens. It’s £1999 but you can fit 72 people in it, and I guess it would be pretty easy to spot in that festival field.

 

If you click through you’ll see they have lots of other great tents such as the watermelon one – however for sheer ability to find in a festival the Titanic tent is my absolute favourite, but at almost £8,000 I can dream right?.. Only concept images are available to date and it also comes with Iceberg tents (amazing right). I have always said great concepts start with a brilliant name.

£500 Jelly Moulds

31 Mar

Below Stairs of Hungerford is where I suspect some serious cooking & foodie geeks hang out not to mention collectors of Kitchenalia – I suspect if Sam Bompas visited he would never leave. It’s the beautiful antique copper jelly moulds I have fallen for – but £500 for one is never going to happen!!!

Wooden Bikes

23 Sep

[Naturally this post is written for Mr Pete Fowler]

These bikes from Jan Gunnenweg are made from 95% timber (and that includes the asymmetrical wooden wheels, handle bars, pedals yadda yadda yadda) are simply STUNNING. POA but they take 200 hours each to create so one can guess they wont be cheap. Think of it as investment in a work of art rather than an eye wateringly expensive (but BEAUTIFUL) bike!
