I love miniatures because it gives you a sense of being able to control a large part of the world in a small contained space. Food is especially dear to me since it's universally relatable and there are so many different colors and textures to try to replicate.

I've started to explore the less-palatable side of food by sculpting their stages of decomposition in my "Decay in Miniature" series. When sculpting food in 1:12 scale, where one inch equals 12 inches, I render clay sculptures with acute attention to detail when representing their real-life counterparts. Polymer clay is an ideal medium since it is readily molded into a wide range of food substances! You can see more in my previous post.
