Incredible Butter Sculptures by Jim Victor and Marie Pelton


Artists are known to think outside of the box and utilize uncommon items to construct their creations. From matchsticks to socks and wire coat hangers, we’ve seen our fair share of imaginative art using unconventional materials, but sculptor Jim Victor, accompanied by his wife Marie Pelton, have mastered the artistic use of a common household product–butter. The creative duo has been taking the creamy blocks out of the kitchen and into the studio for the past 11 years, producing some incredible butter sculptures.

The Conshohoken, Pennsylvania-based couple has worked together on a number of impressive butter-based projects that has garnered them international acclaim for their craft. Rather than treating the unusual sculpting material as a cheap component meant for cooking or meaningless hobbies, they take their art seriously, constructing three-dimensional installations that could have very well been carved out of marble. Each golden statue is meticulously sculpted, reflecting the smooth and coarse textures found in real life.
