One look at these ice cream ceramics by artist Anna Barlow and you'll find yourself licking your lips. As realistic as they might look, however, these creations are not meant to be eaten.

Barlow's ice cream ceramics are made using porcelain, clay and glaze. The artist, inspired by food and how people indulge in sweets and treats, has created this amazingly delightful collection that captures the stunning detail of melting ice cream cones, from their textured wafers to dripping chocolate and strawberry sauce. Her incredible works not only look realistic, but they also tell stories. For instance, melting ice cream could suggest a hot day or the fact that the ice cream has been abandoned. Her work captures the "fleeting moments of melting ice creams on a summer’s day," as WeHeart describes.
