Here's what one collector has written about our Kitty Sushi:
I saw Neko wa Nigiridesu and I was moved: the work is immaculate. A piece of salmon sashimi, the light playing off of the translucent orange glass which is threaded through with bright white opaque marbling. It glistens in mouthwatering facsimile to the fish of its inspiration. This sashimi sits on a small mound of white rice, brightly shining white, at once sushi and neko, a fluffy white cat with big kawaii eyes. The cat’s expression is one of jovial contentment. As I lose myself in its deceptively passive gaze I am drawn into the existential quandary that is Neko wa Nigiridesu. As a cat, according to its nature, Neko must desire the fish, it is so close yet unobtainable. If the nigiri were to fall, the Law Of Universal Irony dictates that it must fall fish down, casting the most delicious and desirable part into the dirt. The fish however, is the back of the cat, whose instincts demand that it land on its feet. Neko wa Nigiridesu must tumble infinitely, or never rotate at all. It is a being at war with itself, placid kawaii eyes all that it can show the world, unable to express a yearning, a weave of instincts that it cannot unravel. We are all Neko wa Nigiridesu. Neko wa Nigiridesu is us, tumbling infinitely through a universe bent in forcing us to consume ourselves. I have been deeply moved by Neko wa Nigiridesu, and I commend your art, and your vision as an artist.
AND YOU THOUGHT IT WAS JUST CUTE.
Adorable set! With this listing you will receive one each of the sake, tako, ebi and ikura. With this set you will also receive an adorable bonus surprise wasabi sculpture to finish off the arrangement. Wasabi sculpture not pictured, but will be adorable!
Each of the three regular nigiri-kitty is sculpted in white with 'rice' texture, tiny tail, kitty muzzle and ears and a little wasabi nose. With our signature blue eyes. Each one features one of the following sashimi styles:
Tako/Octopus - sculpted in semi transparent milky white with transparent purple 'skin' and suckers.
Sake/Salmon - sculpted in vibrant transparent orange with white 'marbling'.
Ebi/Prawn - YOUR CHOICE - either the sunset orange with white ribbing, OR the more realistic version sculpted in semi transparent milky white with transparent peach and transparent orange ribbing. (pictured example on the seal sushi)
The Ikura piece is sculpted in black with poked seaweed texture with an adorable black kitty muzzle and ears, white nose and our signature blue eyes. Her sushi head is built up with individually sculpted salmon roe in vibrant orange. We have meticulously placed a white 'rice' light bounce under the roe to make them really shine.
Each piece is approximately life size to actual nigiri. A gorgeous arrangement.
PLEASE NOTE: this listing will be made-to-order, meaning the photos are for reference only as we will sculpt your pieces individually. It will not be exactly the same, but just as cute, we PROMISE.
