Sushi Accenting Art
How awesome is this? While my mind is always spinning with design ideas, I tend to think in one direction with my felt food: kid toys. I love when I get contacted about using the food in other ways.
Recently, a psychologist filled her waiting room with breakfast cafe menus and a bunch of my felt food breakfast items so children waiting could play breakfast cafe. What a cute idea!
This week, an amazing artist, Lucy Fagella, bought some of my sushi to accent her sushi plates for an upcoming show. I love the plates but they aren't available in her shop just yet. For more pics of these plates, check out Lucy Fagella Pottery's blog at http://lucyfagellapottery.wordpress.com/2011/04/17/sushi-plate-with-felt-sushi/sushi-plate-and-felt-sushi_lucia-pottery/. If you scroll to the bottom, there's a great slideshow of her making pottery. I was mesmerized--she is so talented!
You can check out her shop at Foodie Ceramics: http://www.etsy.com/shop/FoodieCeramics. I am in love with her salt cellar & butter keepers. As a total foodie household, I can't believe we don't have a salt cellar or butter keeper already. I've added hers to my wish list!
As always, if you're looking for felt food sushi or other items, http://www.etsy.com/shop/FeltFoodKids.
