Gallery – my bentos June 2014

No.130

Here is another round up post with all the bento photos I published in June.
Following the month of May, we were enjoying bright and pleasant early summer month here in Oslo and I continued to produce very tiny things in a more summery theme.  I had a week of producing “Summer Bento” and I really enjoyed making them. Flowers, a strapp dress, a straw hat, beach sandals on the shore that white waves washes constantly… I hope you could feel summer by these bentos. Maiko bento was back, this time it was her appearance from back. I have made her front figure before, it is really a detailed work to make a maiko bento but I really enjoy it. As it takes a longer time, I can not make it so often but I would like to try another one soon.

The month of June started with a bento which I made with inspiration from the beautiful cathedral Rose Windows. You know, you never know what may inspire you and your creativity… Enjoy!

June 2    I wanted to recreate a beautiful Rose Window in a old cathedral in my bento.

June 3   A bento in the theme of Japanese Temari.  Temari is Japanese small balls decorated very beautifully, they are complete hand craft, usually they use silk thread and very fine tapes.  Here is my food version.
