UK artist Kate Jenkins works on creating a different medium of art by knitting a smorgasbord of snacks and meals in her intricate detailed crochet foods series.

These creations are adorable because Kate seems to give each different snack or plating a personality—that is, each piece is more than just a lifeless recreation of something you ate for dinner—they really seem to have emotion. This crocheted art work is inspired by the beautiful and animated side of sushi, burgers, hot dogs, fish and chips, donuts and more!

I love the soft textures Kate Jenkins creates with the wool. The woven lines add depth to the plates and utensils. I am always a fan of artists who attempt to make food out of weird and obscure materials and the time and focus it takes to knit something so small and detailed is admirable.
