margaret dorfman

remember this post about handmade paper made from fruits and vegetables?  well, i recently discovered an artist who takes it to the next level.  

margaret dorfman makes functional objects - like jewelry and bowls - out of paper-thin slices of fruits and veggies coated with a clear coat of resin so that the colors and patterns are preserved forever.  how cool is that?

{beet, starfruit, and zuchinni cuffs}

you can find some of margaret's pieces for sale at uncommon goods.

oh wow! That's incredible.

I once tried to make a simple flat sheet of "fruit papyrus" and wound up with a disgusting moldy mess, so I find Dorfman's work especially impressive!
