Some people are just born creative, and that was clearly the case for Manami Sasaki. The Japanese designer creates edible masterpieces based on Japanese art and geometric shapes.

Sasaki’s canvas is toast. She spends hours making sure each elaborate piece of the artistic puzzle is perfectly cut and arranged, and, even better, when she’s done, it’s all still edible. Many of her designs are inspired by woodblock prints called Ukiyo-e.

Materials for her pieces have included everything from squid ink to edible flowers, as well as more common toast toppings, like radishes, microgreens, and mushrooms.

Sasaki often shares the inspiration for her pieces on Instagram, along with everything she used to make them, and how the flavors work together. From geometric works reminiscent of flowers between cobblestones to budding plants, Sasaki’s work is a marvel.

Check out some of her incredible artwork below and follow her on Instagram for more.
