Source: @ipnot Japanese Embroidery Artist Paints With Needle And Thread To Create Miniature Artwork Of Food 2017-03-02 Thu 2018-04-18 Wed Working with a vast selection of over 500 colored threads ready at her command, Japanese embroidery artist ipnot has the artistic prowess to know just how to make her audience do a double take. Creating brilliantly detailed embroidery pieces of food, animals, and other objects we often find in our daily lives, ipnot’s hand-stitched works make it difficult to believe that they were made with only a needle and some thread. Although it’s hard to pick a favorite, many of her best creations are of food. Whether the subject is a vegetable or a bowl of mouthwatering ramen, every textural and visual component is spot on, and it’s impossible not to feel a little pang of hunger after seeing them.
