Hello Sweet Friends!
Would you like to see some absolutely fantastic sugar art?
Today I really wanted to share with you a very special project I put together. It is something close to my heart and I labored many hours over it’s creation. With the help of some incredibly talented sugar artists of course!
Last Year I organized a really cool cake collaboration called Myths and Legends ~ a collaboration of sugar art.
~ 21 International sugar artists bring to life symbolic and compelling tales from long ago that have survived the ages. Stories that once upon a time were believed to be true but are today limited to the sphere of Myths and Legends. ~
“I find artists do their best work when they have total creative freedom.”
When I decided to organize a cake collaboration I instantly knew this would make an amazing theme. I gathered sugar artists from all over the world who were very excited about the possibilities it presented. I chose people based on the style of work I had seen them create in the past. Particularly people who were fantastic at 3d sculpted work, though I did not require that they create 3d sculpted pieces. I really didn’t want to put any limitations or requirements on what they created. I find artists do their best work when they have total creative freedom.
I started this collaboration back in November of 2014. My goal was to give a lot of time for people to research and choose something they were really excited about. I know from experience that if your subject is exciting to you or that you have a special connection with, that you tend to put more of your heart and soul into your creation. I wanted that for this collaboration.
There are endless inspiration ideas out there from every culture. I was hoping some of the artists would choose to feature stories from their own cultures, something close to their heart that would inspire them to create something very special. I really wanted this to be a gathering of beautiful art celebrating early cultures and ideas, stunning artistic creations that just happened to be made of sugar. The artists I have gathered are fantastic at their craft and truly brought some epic creations to life.
It was such an honor working with all of these amazingly talented artists and I am so proud of the crazy cool collaboration we put together!
You should seriously go check out our website Myths and Legends ~ a collaboration of sugar art and read about all of these fascinating Myths & Legends. You can also see some close up photos of the fabulous details on all of these pieces. They are true works of art.
Have A Sweet Day!!
