“I have always found delight in creating things,” Dorfman writes on her site. “I discovered at an early age that I did not need to go to stores to find materials for my projects; just looking around me turned up acorns, bark, and moss.”

By transforming ordinary edibles into objects of beauty, Dorfman sees her role as part artist, part alchemist.

She cuts all the fruits and vegetables with a mandoline slicer and a “wickedly sharp assortment of knives.” Leftovers are composted and unused produce donated to her local zoo. By transforming ordinary edibles into objects of beauty, Dorfman sees her role as part artist, part alchemist. “I know it is not magic and I am not actually creating something new,” she adds. “I am only uncovering what was always there, waiting to be seen.”
