Vegetable Eagle

Here is How I displayed the vegetable Eagle.
I used the Kyo-potato this time.
It is big!! isn't it? (the picture below) 
In winter, There are a lot of big size of vegetable
therefore I like this season.
I was lucky to have this one. 

First of all, I peel the skin.
then cut little by little to make a body.
This is a face of the bird.
I also made the Salmon with carrot.
I wanted to show that the salmon escapes from the eagle.
Then I put a base for an Eagle.

Then I set the Eagle. It is done!!

Cucumber Art 4

It was present surprize!
Last month, I had interview from two TV Stations.

The one is from Yomiuri TV.
I 've made the Cucumber Art of two announcers.

The directer gave me the illustration of two people like this.

I was surprised at a request to make two people with a cucumber,
but thought that I could make it when I watched an illustration.

The cucumber art that I made first.
They look cute but The balance of two people is not good.

Then I made again. I satisfied this time!
Practice brings you a best result.

The directer brought them to the TV studio, then
Announcer  ate in the live broadcasting lol.
It was so much fun :)

The one is from Local cable TV.They will broadcast later this month(from 16th Dec~)

I'll place the pictures here after broadcast.

I've made some other veggie Art  recently.
I made the LOGO of Computer company served with calfornia roll.

Also made a Ferrari 458 for my friend's friend.
This was made by Sweet potato and food color.
Thank you my friend H-kun and Ai-san!

to be continue...

Otukimi (watch the moon )

In Japan, We have an event to watch the moon once a year.
On the day, We set a Omochi(rice cake) and a Japanese pampas grass
then  watch the moon.

from Japan, looks like 2 rabbits live in the moon from long time ago...
Here is a rabbit made by Daikon radish.

I heard that look was different by a country.
From some country, It seems to look like a crab so I'm told.
How does it look  from your country? :)
