edible masterpieces

The Art Fund has kicked off a fundraising initiative that encourages art lovers and creatives to make edible masterpieces, with all money raised going towards the support of hundreds of UK museums and galleries. the philanthropic bake-off asks entrants to create food-based works of art, with recommended recipes including a Mondrian-inspired Battenberg, a Jackson Pollock themed marshmallow treat and a glittering cake mimicking the familiar diamond-encrusted Damien Hirst skull. Campaign Coordinator, Katharine Richards explains:

‘We’re hoping to inspire people, through the medium of food, to raise money for our national museums and galleries. what could be more fun than recreating your favorite work of art out of simple ingredients you have in your fridge – which you can then eat!’

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.
