This is beautiful work, I’ll let the artist speak:
“A set of cutlery that embodies my personal conclusions of shape and form.
Achieved by the graphical two-dimensional shape of the top surface that allows the fluid three-dimensional form to hang from. While contrasting each other they ultimately find a complimenting balance as they influence one another.
Finished in sterling silver and Zirconia (technical ceramic) they relate to traditional tableware such as fine china and silverware.”
It is price on request because of limited production. He is looking for a producer/manufacture to be able to bring this product to the public.

Silverware that you can use? That you can put in the dishwasher? That is hard enough that the edge won’t dull or the pattern wear down? The amazing process of making these by hand results in silver that is much tougher than machine stamped silverware. They have some nice patterns and offer custom work as well. Oh, one last benefit is less polishing!

An interesting article by Brendan McConville the professor of history at Boston University. These silver communion spoons were built with specifically chosen silver coins. His article contains many topics that intrigue me such as repurposed coins, Guy Fawkes (which is this sunday) and Alan Moore. OK, the last one is a stretch.

The McDonald’s coffee spoon has a sordid past and solid ending. Am I the only one who remembers these? It seems that this icon of the 80s has slipped away and no one noticed. They were flimsy and completely useless for stirring your coffee as it was. The other use seems ridiculous looking back now.
