For an artistic mind, even a seemingly boring ordinary object can become an art medium. The Japanese artist Tomoko Sato, for example, works with things most of us reserve for the fridge - radishes, watermelons, apples, and other fruit and veg. The artist is inspired and incorporates techniques from Thai fruit carving art, an indispensable traditional element of Thai New Year (Songkran) celebrations.
Needless to say, the carving of such intricate designs on food requires a great deal of skill and precision. Here are 15 gorgeous examples of these edible masterpieces. After seeing these beautiful food carvings, you’ll never look at an apple or watermelon the same way again!
