Now THIS is how every Monday should start! Drippy, sweet, whipped cream covered ice cream with a ceramic cherry on top… ok, it’s not really drippy or sweet because not only are the cherries ceramic, so is everything else! Yep, I am officially obsessed with this work by UK based artist Anna Barlow. Here is her description of this series:

The beauty of food left to melt and ooze holds a fascination for me. It is something that is usually over looked and temporary but this can be captured and frozen in time with clay and glaze. I have focused on ice cream as it is such a momentary and yet memorable treat that most of us have experienced and therefore can evoke memories of sensations and tastes, as well as prompt a fantasy of desired indulgences. I am firstly inspired by the materials I use. I find that clay, porcelain and glaze have so many wonderful possibilities and often translate well to represent food.

Yum. Oh, and good luck not craving ice cream for the rest of the day. You’re welcome!

    These are so freaking adorable. It was 90 degrees here in LA yesterday and I was fighting a losing battle with a melting ice cream cone.
