Sweet art

Posted: February 8th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , , | No Comments »

Twenty-eight-year-old Japanese candymaker Shinri Tezuka specializes in the traditional art of amezaiku, the cutting, pulling, and bending of molten sugar into elaborate lollipops. Amezaiku originated in the 8th Century, and Shinri is one of the last of the candy artisans. He sells his amazing amezaiku at his Tokyo candy store, Asakusa Amezaiku Ameshin. Here are some of his creations. Are they too beautiful to eat? Probably not, since they taste as good as they look.

Here’s Shinri Tezuka in action. Watch the magic happen!

Made your fort? Check.

Hoarded your ammunition? Check.

Called a nap-time ceasefire? Double check!

Did you ever have one of those days?

Of course you have. We all have.

There’s only one thing to remember.

Never give up, never surrender!

Author Madeleine L’Engle hooked me on fantasy with her wonderful novel A WRINKLE IN TIME. Here is little Madeleine enjoying a snow day in 1928. Magical!
