feast your eyes: plant-dyed pasta art and macaroni mandalas

butterfly pea flowers and prickly pear are a few of the vibrant vegetables and herbs used to make these rainbow pasta shapes and macaroni mandalas. the self-proclaimed ‘pasta powerhouse’ linda miller nicholsons lived in piemonte, italy where she learned about the numerous pasta geometries found throughout the region. in a re-interpretation of tradition and taste, nicholsons developed an edible art that sees ravioli, cannelloni, and everything in between beam in a palette of patterns and funky colors.

nicholsons‘ art is made entirely from plant-dyed pasta, and never includes any artificial dyes. in an expression of her work, nicholsons arranges her colorful pasta shapes into prints and patterns, and spiraling mandalas — with some motifs reminiscent of yayoi kusama’s expansive polka-dotted environments. discover more of nicholsons’ decorated delectables here.
