Believe it or not
The average household in the United States spends about 35 hours a year making toast! Texas based artist Alfonso Osoria spends much more time than that, creating food art out of toast!
Self taught, Osoria has tried a variety of techniques, but the majority of his work uses the simplest—burning the bread and scraping away the excess burn. He then places each piece into the frame like a puzzle!
Over the past 25 years, Ripley’s has acquired toast art from four different artists in four different countries!
- Japan: 16 pieces
- Mexico: 2 pieces
- England: 3 pieces
- The United States: 5 pieces
ABOUT THOSE COFFINS…
Handmade at the Kane Kwei workshop in Ghana, Africa, the Ripley’s fantasy coffin collection includes coffins shaped like everything from an eagle to to a bottle of Coke-a-Cola, all customized to match the job or personality of the deceased!
