They say that necessity is the mother of invention, but we feel it’s safe to say that there is no real need for this specific creation. Therefore, invention can sometimes be purely for the sake of art. After all, no one needs a small lacquered bowl made from a jawbreaker candy, but it makes for an unusual story and a great piece of decor.
The hands responsible for this deserve some praise, especially since it was the artist’s third attempt at trying to transform a jawbreaker. He was meticulous, dedicated, and incredibly precise and delicate with his tools. It’s mesmerizing and therapeutic to watch the layers of color slowly shift and reveal themselves.
