I've had food on my mind a lot lately, so when I found pictures of Ed Bing Lee's work, it took me a minute realize what I was looking at. The amazing works are made entirely of knotted cord - if I'd had any idea one could do this, I may have kept at macrame!
Ed uses materials such as linen, cotton, and raffia to create this fiber art.

Take a look at Ed's website for more delicious looking art from his Delectable series and examples of his other work. I especially like his Picnic works based on Georges Seurat's pointillism.
