This brilliantly executed thread work has us wound up in knots
Embroidery today has reached a new level of delicate aesthetics with details that would make your eyes go crazy. The Japanese artist Ipnot's miniature food embroidery checks all the boxes when it comes to mind-blowing needle-work.
Inspired by her grandmother’s embroidery habits, Ipnot picked up the craft at an early age. The classic French knot was her calling. By wrapping the thread around a needle multiple times, Ipnot mastered this intricate knot. Her artwork focuses on 2D and 3D forms of mostly miniature food, but not only. She finds inspiration in almost anything – from animals to sports, and seasons to movies. The strategically arranged real life props (chopsticks, coffee cups or kettles) throw life into some of the flat embroideries.
