Hungry For Fashion? Minnesota Artist Redefines Jewelry
Looking at the photo above, you're probably thinking, "Wow! A tiny dessert bakery item! I bet I could eat a hundred of those without gaining a pound!" That might be true if what you are seeing was actual food; but alas, it is not. What you are seeing are some of the amazing tiny food artwork pieces created by Kaitlyn Luhm, a Minneapolis-based sculptor/Multi-media art creator at Luhmstudios.
ABOUT KAITLYN LUHM
Kaitlyn Luhm has been working on her sculpting skills since she was just a child but started taking her art more seriously in the year 2014. She loves lots of different kinds of artistic creation but always seems to come back to creating her tiny art food jewelry. Here creations are made from translucent polymer clays, and she uses other techniques to capture the real look of food in her tiny art masterpieces.
When you look at her artwork, you notice the intricate detailing. I asked Kaitlyn if she uses special eyewear to help her see what she is creating when it's so small, but she said, luckily her eyesight up close is pretty good, so she doesn't wear special eyewear to make her tiny pieces of art. She molds the pieces with her hands and by using tools to help her create just the right look.
KAITLYN'S ARTISTIC BACKGROUND
Kaitlyn grew up with art all around her. She spent time with her Dad at flea markets where he would sell art, and she spent time with her Mom who makes small accessories for her dollhouses and room boxes. She also watches a lot of online videos and chats with other artists, and of course, just tries new things on her own.
