a tiny dish

Artist Kimberly Burke crafts these miniature meals that look so lifelike you’d be forgiven for thinking they were made of real food! She explains:

“I love miniatures because it gives you a sense of being able to control a large part of the world in a small contained space. Food is especially dear to me since it’s universally relatable and there are so many different colors and textures to try to replicate.”

Working with clay at a scale of 1:12, where one inch equals 12 inches, the artist pays particular attention to detail. Burke uses shading techniques to create the textural appearance of real food and the results, well…..look good enough to eat!
In a recent series, Burke explores the ‘less-palatable’ side of food, sculpting dishes of decay. To see more of her work, visit fairchildartminiatures.com.

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.


He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.


An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.


One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
