To express the love of food, love of making things and love of unique jewelry, artist Munakata-shi from Japan creates amazing miniature food-inspired rings. Plastic food is really popular in Japan and the idea to make mini versions of food came from the life-size replicas use to advertise the food outside many restaurants and lure the customers in.
“I think that people ‘eat with their eyes’ in most cases and the Japanese seem to be especially aware of this. In Japan, when food is served, not only is it arranged in a certain way to show off the different colors and qualities but also the choice of plate or dish is very important. I consider this as I put together the wood, Japanese chiyogami paper, pottery shards, clay and small plastic food pieces that make up my rings and other jewelry.”
