Photo Find: Miyuki Sakai

Today’s “find” was actually discovered via a post on Decor8 earlier this week. A spread on tarts in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living caught Holly’s eye, thanks to the gorgeous and highly unusual styling. Created by Japanese-born and San Francisco-based artist Miyuki Sakai, those “plates” are actually hand-made illustrations. Created with a sewing machine and thread. Can you even believe that? As a food lover and keen sewer, I’m all over this idea:

Miyuki has some lovely work in her portfolio, too. I’m loving all these gorgeous “drawings” of produce, treats and beautifully laid tables:

And with that, I’ll leave you to enjoy your weekend. Happy Friday!
