Giant Cutlery As Art

Jbmondino

The Italians are so cool. Token pretentious art-blather here:

An immaculate surrounding entwines eight out of scale pieces thoroughly clad in white gold mosaic: a Cake Platter, a Teapot, a Silver Spoon, a Tea Tray, a Basket, a Dish Cover, a Candle Holder and a Chandelier. The visitor's attention is captured by the surprising size of the sculptures that seem to float in a dreamlike space. In this ambiance, the pieces shimmer as if they belonged to the fine family silverware collection, "brushed up" and proposed in a contemporary key, in an amazing gigantic format that will bring back to mind those memories from the past. An explosion of brightness and charm, invites the guests to discover these sculptures immersed in a surreal space, where getting captured and letting yourself go, where reality-meets-illusions is unavoidable.
