Tomoko Misumi’s Miniature Art

WORDS Michaela Stehr IMAGES @tomoko_misumi_tchaiko

These adorable, detailed miniatures by Japanese artist Tomoko Misumi take tiny food and cuteness to the next level.

From bento boxes and small pieces of jam toast to birthday cakes and sushi, Tomoko shrinks regular food items and reimagines them at one-tenth of the scale.

Using Fimo clay, wood, paper, paint and non-edible materials, she gets her creations as close to the real thing as possible. Here are 10 of our favourites.
