Beauty in our fragility.

Beautiful or grotesque?  This piece is a caricature homage to a stunning porcelain piece titled Anotomia by Mark Ryden. This is made entirely from Pettinice fondant, and I used food grade decorators glaze for the porcelain effect. The pretty face is a mould from Sweet Revolutions by Domy and I used Rolkem dusts for all the features.


As far as the piece, I actually cried when I saw it.  Seeing Ryden’s Anotomia really challenged my perspective on seeing the beauty of our human selves. Our fragility.
