Artist Judith Klausner creates these extraordinary Oreo cameos and today — the 100th anniversary of the Oreo cookie — she is getting some national notice. Klausner, who also works with bee stingers, baby teeth and nail clippings, created a piece last year for the ‘Curioser’ exhibit at the Roger Williams Park Museum of Natural History. From her own bio:
Judith G. Klausner is a Somerville MA artist with a love for small, intricate, and overlooked things. She received her degree in Studio Art from Wesleyan University in 2007 after constructing her thesis primarily out of insects, and has since continued to search the details of her surroundings for inspiration. She enjoys playing with her food, both recreationally and professionally.
The ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ segment with Mo Rocca after the jump. Klausner comes in at about the 1:30 mark. (And actually, another artist made a really cool manhole cover.)
