Giant Candy Sculptures by Nicola Freeman [Dessert Time]

UK art student Nicola Freeman created these giant-sized candy sculptures for her degree show at the University of Wolverhampton.

I started out with food art, and then I came up with this idea of enlarging it to a scale that was shocking – but then it turned into something that was a lot more fun, so that people could relate to it, dealing with the idea of mass consumerism.

For me, it’s more about the attraction from the perspective of the viewer – Everyone seems to be able to relate to these pieces, and find that they’re bringing back their childhood memories. The sweets I’ve chosen have been around for quite a long while. I remember these from my childhood.

Check out some additional photos after the break.
