These Bizarre Lollipops Are Made By A Real Life Willy Wonka, Using A 1200 Year-Old Technique.
These incredible sculptures are a sight to behold. They are insanely detailed, delicate, and unusual, and they are made even more impressive by the fact that you can actually eat them.
Amezaiku is the Japanese craft of lollipop-making, dating back to the 700's when Japanese artisans created them as gifts.
One shop in the Asakusa district of Tokyo, Ameshin, is keeping the tradition alive.
The shop is a studio and workshop for artist Shinri Tezuka, who creates these amazing pieces with sugary syrup and organic food coloring.
If you happen to be in Tokyo, you can pick one of these up for between 1000-2000 yen (about $8-$16).
They might be delicious, but they definitely look too good to eat.
Next, here's another artist who creates with edible candy.
