This Japanese Artist Carves Intricate And Gorgeous Patterns Into Fruits. They’re So Pretty, You Won’t Want To Eat Them
Have you ever stopped to wonder how people lived before social media? If I ask my parents that, they will probably reply with some sort of snide comment about how we are the spoilt generation. But in all honesty, I can’t imagine living my life without Instagram, Facebook or even Twitter. Who am I kidding? Twitter is my favourite one. Where else am I supposed to get my daily dose of drama? It’s because of social media that we are able to keep up with our favourite celebrities, share our lives with friends and of course, showcase our talents. And today, I came across a Japanese artist, Tomoko Sato, whose creativity is beyond our imagination. She carves beautiful and intricate designs into fruits and vegetables.
Tomoko’s designs are so gorgeous that they are almost mesmerizing. While most of us look at apples and tomatoes and see food, she looks at them and sees a blank canvas. In 2004, Tomoko visited Thailand and fell in love with the traditional Thai carving craft. She learned the skill, returned to Kyoto and shifted her docus from woodworking to carving fruits and vegetables.
Now, Tomoko Sato turns ordinary food into delicate, edible sculptures These stunning ornaments, intricate designs and beautiful patterns speak volumes towards her incredible skills and talent. She makes these fruits look so gorgeous that I would rather wear them than eat them. Who thought a simple apple can look so pretty? No offence to apples.

Just look at Tomoko Sato designs. They are so intricate and detailed. Oh man, if I ever tried this I would probably end up shredding the fruit completely. I definitely don’t have the patience and the eye for detail it takes to make these gorgeous fruit sculptures. These look more like jewellery than fruits. I would much rather turn them into earrings and necklaces than eat it. Wouldn’t you agree? They look delicious for sure but, and I never thought I would say this about fruit, they are just so pretty!
It’s times like these that I am so thankful for social media. Without it, we would’ve never known creativity like Tomoko Sato’s.
