japanese embroidery artist ipnot fabricates dishes of food and drink that figuratively and literately look to leap off the artwork. by positioning the thread patterns alongside and interacting with their real-life inspiration and surroundings, the embroideries display a real sense of realism. as such, her fabric work includes coffee being poured from a pot, miniature ehomaki sushi rolls and traditional ramen recipes.

I discovered myself that the french knot stitch can be done by wrapping thread around the needle,explains ipnot. ‘I find this type of stitching to be a lot of fun to do and it is my favorite type of stitch. I have chosen the french knot stitch to represent my style, choosing a thread of my own preference from 500 different-colored embroidery options. as in the art of stipple painting, I use my needle like a paint brush and I stitch one knot at a time.
