Chris Naylor's London Skyline Sculpture is Made of 2,186 Sugar Cubes

Using 2,186 sugar cubes, Chris Naylor created a sculpture of London’s skyline. The sweet creation was made in celebration of the Museum of London Dockland’s 10th anniversary. Landmarks included in Naylor’s sculpture includes the London Eye, Tower Bridge and St.Paul’s Cathedral. Behind the sugar is a light blue sky with wispy clouds.

Weighing in at 30 pounds, the artwork is composed of carefully chiseled sugar cubes. Each cube was painstakingly carved with a Stanley knife to get just the right curve. Naylor spent over 15 minutes on some cubes getting the details to his precise specifications.

The inspiration behind the sugar cubes came from the Museum London Dockland’s storied history. The building that the museum is housed in was built by sugar merchants over 200 years ago.
