The Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders can’t stop marveling at the impeccably detailed, impossibly tiny miniature food created by Rochester, MN-based artist Kim of fairchildart. From fruit and veggies to mouthwatering main courses, tantalizing sweets, and even a cannibal’s feast, all of Kim’s 1:12 scale food sculptures are handmade using polymer clay, needles, colored chalk pastels, rocks, razor blades and awesome attention to detail.

"I started out in July of 2008 with a book by Sue Heaser called Making Doll’s House Miniatures with Polymer Clay. It’s a fantastic book with very easy to follow tutorials on everything from miniature potatoes to Tiffany style lamps. I was amazed at how such simple clay techniques could produce incredibly realistic results. From there I started using pictures of real food as a reference and it’s spiraled into an obsession ever since!”

When asked how she manages to make her miniature food look so realistic, Kim says that secret to her success is: “a good dose of artistic masochism and being a stickler for details.”

She also has pieces available for purchase via the fairchildart Etsy shop.
