Go Behind the Scenes: What Hangs on the Walls at Food Network?
In our 22 years of producing and airing cooking and food television shows, we've amassed quite a collection of props in our vast prop room, everything from fine china to vintage utensils (there's even a ukulele). We recently decided to dust off some of our more interesting pieces and hand them over to artist Deniz Asutay, who masterfully converted them into large-scale collages. She created 16 in all, and now our office walls are adorned with eye-catching pieces that help tell our story in a way that's every bit as visually appealing as the food the props helped make beautiful these past two decades.
You can try the same thing at home. Asutay used simple materials like paint, spray paint, contractor grade silicone adhesive and medium density fiberboard (MDF) mounted with French cleats. You can find all of your ingredients at your local DIY store or home improvement center.
