Art student Nicola Freeman has created the ultimate homage to candy sweets.

The student from the University of Wolverhampton created four larger-than-life sculptures of common candy sweets: Love Hearts, Sweetie Watch, Sweetie Necklace and Lolly Pop. The results? A flawless execution and pieces that look almost edible.

Nicola Freeman's confectionary pieces are made of plaster and resin. Freeman's play with color has also produced a flawless candy series.

In an interview with CraftZine.com, Nicola Freeman explains her inspiration: "I started out with food art, and then I came up with this idea of enlarging it to a scale that was shocking -- but then it turned into something that was a lot more fun, so that people could relate to it, dealing with the idea of mass consumerism."
