Canadian artist of applied art Sofia is married to a Japanese man, and has been living in Japan for almost 15 years. Her food rings are the combination of her love of food, her love of making things and love of unique jewelry. Plastic food is really popular in Japan. This idea of plastic food just caught her imagination. “I think that people ‘eat with their eyes’ in most cases and the Japanese seem to be especially aware of this. In Japan, when food is served, not only is it arranged in a certain way to show off the different colors and qualities but also the choice of plate or dish is very important. I consider this as I put together the wood, Japanese chiyogami paper, pottery shards, clay and small plastic food pieces that make up my rings and other jewelry”.
