What can be cooked from pasta different varieties, a cookbook or a collection of recipes from the Internet will tell. But those "dishes" that are prepared by the Russian Sergey Pakhomov, a resident of the Perm Territory, are not included in these lists. Firstly, they cannot be boiled, and they are inedible when dry, and secondly, who will eat the works of art, miniature sculpturesdepicting various types of transport, thanks to which Sergei Pakhomov gained fame in Russia and abroad? Sergey Pakhomov is a professional PR specialist, and this unusual hobby was initially only a creative idea for an advertising campaign for a pasta factory. Moving models of cars, airplanes and other vehicles were supposed to become visual aids, and as a result survived the factory. It closed, and Sergei Pakhomov's art hobby lives on and flourishes.
The author built the first figurine from pasta more than five years ago. Today its collection is vast and varied: cars, motorcycles, tanks, airplanes, a tractor, a truck, an asphalt paver, a helicopter live in it … Each model is not just a figurine - wheels and blades spin, doors and hatches open … making each such miniature pasta. He says that he carefully selects the material for them, and can buy a whole package of pasta for the sake of one detail. What is not useful for creativity, cooks and eats with gusto. Many times he was offered to cook and eat one of the exhibits of his pasta collection as a joke, but the sculptor refused: the details of the figures are held together with glue, and it may turn out to be toxic.
Such painstaking work disciplines, calms, distracts. Therefore, the artist spends many hours of free time on his hobby. Today - he is the only patent holder for souvenir products from pasta.
