Oreo Art: Hand-Carved Cookie Cameos!

created at: 02/23/2012

Bad manners?  Psh!  Playing with your food is art.  At least when Massachusetts-based artist Judith Klausner does it.  I mean, have you ever seen such an intricately-carved, cookie cream cameo?

In her most recent series of creations, which applies Victorian-era handicraft techniques to modern, packaged foods, Klausner seeks to explore “how the intertwined histories of gender and craft have shaped one another and our everyday lives”.  It’s an interesting approach, to say the least.  Check out more of this series, which includes cross-stitched cereal, embroidered toast, and even wallpaper made from condiments, over on Judith’s portfolio.
