Tiny food gallery

We know we live in an age of government cuts, but these beyond miniscule food items are just ridiculous. And by ridiculous we mean two massive thumbs up.

The work of Los Angeles-based artist Jessica Hlavac, her foodstuffs range from impossibly tiny tacos and bread rolls to miniature ice cream and fortune cookies.

Seemingly the product of a furtive why-the-hell-not? mindset, Hlavac uses polymer clay (rolled out from a pasta machine), pastels and varnish as raw products to create her handmade meals and finishes them off with razor blades, sandpaper, toothbrushes, baby wipes, sewing needles and a whole lot more besides. For scale she then places her titchy cheeseboards and barely-there sushi against grapes and small coins, so the more cynical out there can fully comprehend the sheer microscopic size.

The level of patience and dedication that must have gone into creating this mini menus is something to which we can only aspire, but, needless to say, we wholeheartedly endorse such wilful pursuits.

You can find out more about her Lilliputian foods at her illuminating i'm so tiny blog.
