‘Who said not to play with your food’ Part One

I decided to approach a creative personal project on soup in a slightly different way. I asked myself, how do I show soup other than in a bowl or pan? I wanted to explore taking the ingredients out of their final context. So, influenced by the renaissance paintings of food between the 14th & 18th Century, and with the help of the fabulous Davina, I made soup ingredients into floral inspired displays. Although the images may appear effortless, the bouquets were very difficult to structure.

A massive thank you to Davina Perkins for her fabulous prop styling and art direction. Not to mention getting stuck in with helping to create the bouquets.

Here are the final images-
