Laura is a writer, illustrator, and artist living in New York City.
Some people find their artistic outlet with brushes and paint. Others find it with needle and thread, clay, or through making music.
And then, there’s a baker in Japan who goes under the name of Konel, who finds her artistic outlet in bread. And we don’t just mean in making regular bread, which is an art in itself. Konel actually creates stunning loaves that when sliced, reveal an image inside.
From flowers to popular cartoon characters and even kids’ drawings, she turns her round loaves into tiny little masterpieces. It’s not entirely clear how she makes these incredible loaves, but it’s probably something similar to the way images are created in hand-rolled candy, like these (literally) sweet little panda candies.
And like the candies, there’s so much care, skill, and planning that goes into the bread, it seems almost a shame to eat it!
Check out some of her bread art below. We’re huge fans of how she interprets kids’ drawings into edible art!
