Candy loving kids have been known to chew a pack of gum at a time, and if they have artistic inclinations they might turn that chewed up wad of gum into something shapely, like a small sculpture or sticky multi-colored ball.
But even Bazooka Joe himself couldn’t turn chewing gum into works of art as incredible as these pink bubblegum sculptures by Maurizio Savini.
The gum Maurizio uses in his works has not been chewed, it's unwrapped and melted into "layers of usable material" which is then applied to a plaster or fiberglass mold to help stabilize the sculpture's shape.
