I love useful implements that look comical. I bought quite a few old kitchen utensils over the years - I never knew when I started making chandeliers that all this stuff would become collectible kitchenalia. I have used some of these in wall lights, but funnily enough the spoon above made it's way into my kitchen and I use it alot - usually kitchen things migrate the other way - to the studio.
I love the simple mechanism of this spatula thing, that widens it - I presume its for turning something like an omelette over, but I'm not entirely sure.
I got this whisk at a street market, it's ridiculous how much I love the tiny loop it has to hang it on the wall, genius, similarly I love the way the finger holding bit is made on this curvy slicer. I'm always looking for technical solutions in my work - the simple ideas are always the best!
