A Japanese Artist Transforms Fabric into Food Look Alike Embroideries

Japanese embroidery artist ipnot creates bits of food and beverage that seem to leap off of the fabric and into existence. Ipnot enhances the realism of her embroideries by staging them using their real-life inspirations and surroundings, like heaps of fluffy rice in a bowl, and slices of stollen crumbling off a tiny fork.

Ipnot shares her site that her grandmother’s embroidery practice inspired her to start, and she uses the needle and thread equally to the painting process of stippling. You can see more of the artist’s delicate embroideries on Instagram.
