Working under the name Hipota, Japanese artist Kaoru Hirota creates tiny textile sculptures. Often she uses food as the inspiration for her pieces, and the detail that she imparts is shockingly accurate.

Hirota was influenced at a young age by knitted toys that her grandmother would make for her. When interviewed by Amelia’s Magazine, the artist said, “I observe things intently and I strive to express a color and a form as it is. It’s mainly through trial and error that I learned to do it. If you look at the work I did seven years ago you would be surprised!”
