Ann Carrington Bouquets From Old Silver Spoons, Knives And Forks

British artist Ann Carrington, who is also an ambassador for the United Nations, uses sculpture to give new meaning to the everyday. In her series ‘Bouquets and Butterflies’, Carrington gathers hundreds of spoons, knives, and forks both shiny and tarnished to create elegant bouquets. Clumping spoons together she is able to recreate the shapes of roses and tulips that look so realistic, you might even think they’re real flowers, only covered with silver paint. The sculptures were included in Carrington’s solo exhibition ‘Pop goes the Weasel!’ last summer at the Royal College of Art in London in addition to her ships formed from strings of pearls. Who said utensils were only made for eating!
