Creating the chocolate sculpture

Cacao was discovered by the Mayas and Aztecs and was considered as food of the gods. This luscious, enchanting liquid seduces the senses and heightens the feeling of happiness. Integrating the passion for chocolate with the aspiration for art, meant to surprise. Choosing this aphrodisiac as a material for casting my sculptures aims at provoking and challenging all senses.

Love and appreciation for art is given an intriguing new dimension. All blend into an elegant sensation of scent, taste and intellect.

Indulge yourself to savour the sophisticated taste of the mysteries within.

Making the chocolate sculpture

Creating the sculpture starts like any other sculpting process. Anat use mostly wax when sculpting the original.

After the sculpture is ready –  a mold is being made. Then casting the sculpture in warm chocolate takes place.
