Food Toast embroidery, Oreo cameos, condiment wallpaper and cereal samplers Artist Judith G. Klausner works in a lot of nontraditional mediums, but none are as appetizing as her From Scratch series. Using only bread, thread and a little paper for structural support, Klausner combines embroidery with toast to produce some incredibly fine, painstakingly realistic mold, eggs or pats of butter. She stitches “BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY” directly onto Chex corn cereal to produce a kind of “meta sampler.” The white stuff in the middle of an Oreo sandwich cookie is the only material she needs to carve out a totally convincing cameo.
