20 Yum-Looking Embroidered Pieces by a Japanese Artist That Look Like Real Food

Creativity can’t be defined in words. You can’t tell anyone how creative he/she is unless you see a few creative pieces designed by them. Creativity is not something that can be learned through online classes or by reading books; it is in-built and can’t be defined. A few of the artists like Akie Nakata show that beauty is in everything you see, it is all about perception that matters. She takes natural stones and paints them in a way they look like real animals

Another person that recently came into limelight due to her incredible work is Ipnot. She is a Japanese artist and gained attention when her realistic embroidery designs went viral on the internet. If you look at her embroidery designs, then you would find it challenging to identify which one is real or designed. She is a self-taught artist and uses a french knot to create the details of the embroideries. 

She designs masterpieces with her amazing yarn collection. Right from strawberries to pizza and cookies to burgers, her exceptional embroidery pieces make your mouth water. Since her childhood, she used to see her grandma creating beautiful designs from embroidery. This inspired her a lot, and she decided to pursue her dream into this business. 

She said, 

“When I was young, I was looking at my grandma’s creations through embroidery and that inspired me a lot to pursue my dream into this business. That’s why I decided to start my own embroidery business, which is my passion and the love of my life.” 

She uses french knot style and creates sweet and savory treats that look delicious to eat. On her website, she has shared her story about how she got inspired and started practicing embroidering. She says, 

“I discovered myself that the french knot stitch can be done by wrapping thread around the needle. I find this type of stitching to be a lot of fun to do and it is my favourite type of stitch. I have chosen the french knot stitch to represent my style, choosing a thread of my own preference from 500 different-coloured embroidery options. as in the art of stipple painting, I use my needle like a paintbrush and I stitch one knot at a time.”
