Sugar Serif

Italian artist Massimo Gammacurta has managed to make sans serif new again. He’s sculpted the alphabet in hard candy, and the effect is gorgeous. The pieces look like they are created from colored glass. They incorporate beautiful ombre colors, bubbles, and drips, and they are photographed on a plain white background without any distractions. The overall effect is really lovely. I want to play with them all.  Here are a few of my faves:

The letters are reminiscent of an earlier project of Gammacurta’s, wherein he rendered iconic logos in candy, published in his “Lolli-Pop Book.” ©Massimo Gammacurta

I can remember singing this in the schoolyard as a kid, but I never knew it was a Three Stooges thing until now!

For adults only: In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that Massimo has also explored some less-than-R-rated shapes in sugar as well in his KarmaSugar series.

  1. Beautiful. I wonder if he eats them after the picture?

  2. Need another, less hetero centric version of KarmaSugar. Think he takes suggestions?

  3. A little too drippy for me, but certainly colorful. I absolutely love the video. I may find a spot for that on Ram On.
