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…

Capturing unicorn burps

24 Nov

We all know how much I LOVE 826 – and I can only hope elements of A.R.S.E manage to capture what they do so brilliantly. I totally lust over the creativity in their amazing stores –  in this case goods from a Museum of Unnatural History designed by Oliver Munday who’s created a huge collection of desirable goods, including cans of primordial soup, sabertooth tiger dental floss, missing links samples, essence of unicorn burp, and genuine missing links  (via the ever awesome Nerdcore).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Royal nuts

People of Gateshead be proud! After emigrating from the UK, Janet and Philip Williams have created their own House of Windsor with the world’s largest collection of royal memorabilia. Turning their four-bedroom family home in Woonona (south of Sydney) in Australia into a royal museum, which attracts thousands of curious visitors each year.

People have been sectioned for less.

Museum of Modern Tweets

Super clever way of ungeeking Twitter here –

Each and every Tuesday (unless and I quote “‘my hands fall off and my computer explodes” artist Odessa Begay creates a visual representation of a celebrity’s 140-character message. Museum of Modern Tweets is mighty fine waste of time…
