Watch it Wiggle.

I had the pleasure of visiting Elizabeth Hickok's studio at San Francisco's Open Studios event in October. Liz is making an impact on the food and art worlds by making scale molds of San Francisco buildings, and casting the whole thing in colorful gelatin. By adding dramatic lighting to these glistening forms, she captures a brilliance in gelatin that could make Martha swoon. The slippery work pays homage in part to San Francisco's earthquake-bound status, and makes you wonder about the tenuous relationship between man and nature. On the edible side of things, Liz was a very thoughtful host and offered her studio visitors a refreshing assortment of jello shots.

Thanks to Lori E. for bringing Liz to my attention.

More jello coming soon.
