Doctor Sculpts Rice into Adorably Colorful Characters to Dazzle Everyday Bento Boxes

For some, cute food is more than just a passing trend… it's a way of life. Thailand-based doctor and food artist Nawaporn Pax Piewpun (aka Peaceloving Pax) creates adorable, edible characters by shaping colorful balls of rice, each one designed as a lovable figure to accompany bento boxes and bowls. Known as onigiri, Piewpun often depicts beloved pop culture personalities including Totoro, Pikachu, and a Storm Trooper from Star Wars.

The plate is a playground for Piewpun, but she takes her food art seriously. Her expertly-crafted figures present an incredible attention to detail–not one rice grain seems out of place. They are complemented with small pieces of seaweed, thinly sliced to form eyes, whiskers, and large grins on the characters' faces.

Piewpun is a dermatologist by trade and creates onigiri as a hobby. Through her popular Facebook, she encourages anyone who is interested in making their own food sculptures to give it a try. She posts many helpful tutorials on her page, perfect for anyone who wants to spruce up their everyday meal.
