Arts And Crackers

Caution: no matter how hungry you become, never, ever attempt to eat these crackers. Yes, they look extremely realistic and delicious, but they are made of pewter and would certainly crack your teeth. Artist Herbert Hoover creates miniature pop art sculptures that are reminiscent of Andy Warhol's heyday with everyday objects.

The single cracker looks like the perfect companion to a bowl of soup, and the six-pack of cheese sandwich crackers could be the perfect mid-day snack from a vending machine or gas station.

Each cracker is life-size and features tiny ridges, bumps and even the slight ooze of processed cheese. Individually wrapped in plastic, these cracker sculptures look like they came straight from a store-bought pack and provides a delightful snapshot of American convenience cuisine. 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.

ONLY SIX PACK IS AVAILABLE, SORRY.

Made in

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.

These are too cute. I bought them for someone in my office who is addicted to Triscuits. Perfect in a little dish or as paperweights.

    Best Uses

    • It's a decorative cracker

    Comments about Pewter Cracker Sculptures:

    I love that it's a cracker with no other function (not heavy enough to be a paperweight, not aerodynamic enough to throw) than just being a shiny silver cracker! It's so random that it is an awesome gift for someone who has it all (almost).

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was prompt and items well packaged. A wonderful, positive service/delivery experience.
