USEFUL MUSHROOMS – KITCHEN ARTWORK
Size: 50mm-75mm high approx; Price: Limited Edition;
These pieces are all about having fun, combining precise engineering with an artistic concept. Each type has a distinct practical use, with a slightly different stipe (stem) and cap.
The stems are stainless steel, turned on a lathe to loosely reflect the curves of natures original. They have been glass bead blasted and finished by electro-polishing. The caps are again turned, in nylon, with stainless steel rivets inserted to represent spots. Under the caps is further engineering ensuring each one will perform its task efficiently.
Finally, there are some instances of copper caps, heated and then quenched in water and oil to give the wonderful spectrum of colours and deep patterns. Despite being solid, they still retain a practical use.
An enjoyable and artistic amusement for any table.
