Speaking of donuts, the Department of Delicious Deception is currently fighting the urge to take a bit out of these tantalizing glazed donuts created by South Korean ceramicist Jae Yong Kim. Each beautiful, but completely inedible donut is made using clay, colorful glazes, glitter, and sometimes Swarovski Crystals.
“Kim chooses patterns and images that evoke a sense of pop culture both past and present, with several pieces imitating the style of famous painters such as the splattered marks of Jackson Pollack or concentric dots of Yayoi Kusama. These references, alongside their presentation as food, ask the audience to consider what they are really consuming when viewing his small, spherical works.”
