With clay, creatives can build forms that are realistic, fantastical, or a bit of both. An artist creates miniature sculptures that merge stylized animals with delicious desserts. Although they aren’t exactly edible, it’s easy to appreciate their cuteness.
Known as Pobot on Twitter, the Japanese designer’s latest project features tiny Shiba Inu dogs sandwiched in faux green macaroons. Each of these miniature puppies is designed in an exaggerated round shape with small wide eyes and small oval paws that add to their charm. Although their size isn’t immediately apparent, Pobot shows just how small these individual works of art are by picking one up between his thumb and forefinger.
Shiba Inus aren’t the only animals that inspire this artist’s tiny sculptures. Some of Pobot’s other works feature whales, dogs, bears, and other creatures that are all rendered with the same kawaii appearance, which makes them so endearing to look at.
