Cheese Please!

Artist Herbert Hoover's individually packaged cheese cracker sculptures are so realistic and delightful they'll have you hankering for the real thing in no time. Hoover creates life-size sculptures out of vending machine and gas station snacks, giving the owner a yummy piece of pop art and a snapshot of American convenience cuisine.

Witty and beautifully crafted, these copper cheese sandwich crackers are carbon copies of the real thing, right down to the tiny ridges, bumps and the slight puff of processed cheese in the center. Choose from individually wrapped single cheese sandwich cracker or a pack of six. Hand cast in New York City. Sold separately.

These items have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Herbert Hoover

Artist Herbert Hoover has been living in New York and having fun with art for over 15 years. From kinetic sculptures for the Blue Man Group to industrial lamps for Runaway Bride - if he can amuse others with metal, he will. Hoover's work is in the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and in galleries and shops around the country.

Presently, Hoover's work follows in the wonderful tradition of pop art. Hoover casts American convenience food, such as crackers and cookies, in pewter to create a delicious sculpture that is realistic, humorous and ironic all at once.
