I hardly need an excuse to get hungry. I’m not one of those people who “forgets” to eat a meal. Forget? No way. I’m acutely aware of every minute past my normal lunch hour. So when I spotted the word “food” in two submissions in my inbox, I got excited. As it turns out, neither one is actually edible. But both are beautiful, so that’s close enough for me. This first series (above) is a collection from Michael Fujita currently on display at The Clay Studio. Michael created a series of cups and pie slices that are actually made of candy-colored resin. Good enough to eat, and definitely good enough to make me want to check them out in person. If you’re near Philadelphia, you can see them in person right here.
This next piece was sent to me by a reader. “Food” is a beautiful animal print introduced this summer from Beauchamping at Etsy. Now, before this incites an “animals aren’t food!” debate, please know that I don’t love the title. I’m not a fan of the thought process behind viewing animals as food or “meat,” but I’m so in love with the imagery that I’m going to let the title issue lie for now. So, getting past the name (which conveniently lets me combine this with the food/resin work above. Yay!), I adore the simple but striking combination of animals here. It’s sweet enough for a nursery but cool enough for a grown-up room, too. If you’re looking for something to add a little detail to your walls, click here to check out and buy this print ($75) online. xo, grace
*Update: a commenter pointed out what I missed- that the animals spell out “Do Not Feed The Animals”. So whew! It looks like I stupidly missed that and jumped to the wrong conclusion. Sorry about that. Time to put my contacts in ;)
