So many intriguing creative projects have either come from Japan, or been inspired by it.
But perhaps none are more interesting than this one from Hama.
Hama is an art student from Japan who hand crafts delicious looking pieces of sushi from natural stone chunks.
Nigiri, Sashimi, Maki, Temaki, Uramaki. You name it, Hama’s made it!
To start his stone sushi pieces of work he first selects a suitable stone for the intended design and brings it back to his workshop.
All finished versions of each sushi are their original colour. This means that no paint or colouring of any sort was used in the sculpting process.
He then carves the stones into the perfect shape using a hand dremel.
Once the initial sushi shape has been put together, the stones are vigorously hand polished.
Hama also paints his sushi designs to finish off his cyclical design process.
