Veggies, fruits, sweets, main courses – all of these dishes have been rendered in super-small and super-delicious detail by a U.S.-based artist named Kim. No matter how tasty and realistic they look, however, they are all made of clay.

Kim uses polymer clay, needles, colored chalk pastels, rocks and razor blades to create these one-inch-scale food sculptures.

The artist was inspired by a book she came across back in 2008, which was a tutorial for making miniatures for doll houses. The book got Kim fascinated with its miniature world, which has “spiraled into an obsession ever since“. As Kim herself writes on her Deviantart page, “a good dose of artistic masochism and being a stickler for details” is her secret for making food sculptures so realistic that you just might drool.
