These meal themed tiny art works are reminiscent of famous films from the 90s like 'The Borrowers' and 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.' Created by fairchildart (also known as Kim) on DeviantART, these diminutive food sculptures look like extremely small dishes but are actually composed from clay.

As part of an ongoing project the American artist creates multiple tiny art pieces. The most recent include a charcuterie board, barbecue and sushi. In addition to polymer clay, the 1 inch scale sculptures are made out of colored chalk pastels, needles, razor blades and rocks. Despite this, the dishes are so realistic looking, you would probably want to eat them on sight.

Kim was inspired by a book she read in 2008 on how to build miniature doll houses.
