“Nothing is impossible,” said Singapore clay artist Jocelyn Teo on Instagram over the weekend, after it was revealed that American singer John Legend had given his model wife Chrissy Teigen miniature food sculptures created by the artist.
Teo had been working on 15 miniature food replicas based on Teigen’s recipe book “Cravings” since August this year, and had even discussed with the 38-year-old “All of Me” singer over Facetime about the project.
According to Teo, it was Teigen who had introduced Legend to Aiclay, the name of Teo’s miniature sculpture business.
“It was a thrilling ride from the get-go,” said Teo in an Instagram post on 3 December. “I would never have dreamed of sculpting for someone of their fame and talent, and thanking my lucky stars that they picked little ol’ me from this faraway island.”
Teo’s hard work paid off after receiving praise from the 32-year-old model and mother to daughter Luna. Teigen posted shots of her birthday gift on Snapchat, with the caption “Best gift ever!”
Teo could hardly contain her excitement over her newly-revealed project. In a separate post, she said, “I’m just beaming from cheek to cheek as I listen to her in the video. Isn’t she such a dear! All my hard work is WORTH IT. Let me go cry tears of happiness now.”
Teigen’s birthday fell on 30 November. According to media reports, she had a Pan Am-themed party with celebrity friends such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
