The Steph Mantis 'Ninja Throwing Slice' is a deliciously deceptive piece of artwork that doubles as a peculiar coaster. Born and raised in Biddeford, Maine, this artist has always had a close relationship with this classic fast food item.

Mantis grew up in a pizza parlor and has found inspiration in fusing household materials with industrial design. Using real pepperoni slices, Mantis covers the greasy bites in resin, which seals the delectable meal in a transparent shell. After the resin has hardened, the slices can now double as a bar room accessory that will have guests confused and hungry.

This artist is truly quirky as her pieces, with a bio that includes facts like "solved a real life police investigation at age 14" and "can juggle." The Steph Mantis Ninja Throwing Slice is a salivating sculptural masterpiece.
