What can you be inspired to create over a morning cup of coffee? Innovative designer, artist and architect Hong Yi , a graduate from the University of Melbourne, Australia took on the challenge of constructing a remarkable portrait using coffee as her medium of choice. How was it creating such a unique piece? Taking around about 12 hours to complete the project Hong Yi states it was “quite a challenging medium to use – too much water and the rings wouldn’t form easily, very little water and you’d have to be precise with where you place the cup coz the rings would pretty much be permanent.” I love her works, I’m always inspired by artist who can create beautiful works from the most unexpected materials and mediums.
