ARTISODES on WUCF TV features delicious chocolate art

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

This week on WUCF TV’s Artisodes, see how chocolate turns into art with award-winning Artisan Chocolatier, David Ramirez of Orlando.  His creations can be seen, and eaten, in stores around the world.  Get up close as Ramirez creates his delicious art from start to finish.
“The inspiration for my art is life.  It’s recreating things that I see. I wouldn’t call myself an artist, I’m just really creative,” said Ramirez.  “I spend more time thinking about the flavor than the color.  So it’s really impressive to me when people say,  ‘Oh they look so beautiful, they look like little jewelry. I don’t want to eat them.’   For me it’s just part of the process.”
You’ll also meet Pamela Glose, a Central Florida artist who is constantly inspired by the bright colors she finds in the nature around her.  She paints elaborate and colorful figures, all on silk, and helps teach others her methods through e-books and YouTube videos.
WUCF’s Artisodes airs each Thursday on WUCF TV at 8 p.m.
