Knives, forks and spoons can be piece of art

Knives, forks, spoons, all of the utensils made of stainless steel are used not only in the kitchen. An amazing art can be done with that and here are some nice examples!

“Life is beautiful”

gepportraithd08Farhad Moshiri, an Iranian artist, formed the installation entirely from kitchen knives. These knives are stabbed into the wall as he wanted to show how household items can serve as deadly weapons. Visitors could speculate about the history or future use of those knives, whether they are recycled or will be used once more to chop some fruits or vegetables. It is a provoking but at the same time interesting piece of art.

Sculptures made of utensils

Gary Hovey thinks that spoons, knives, forks are much more than just stainless steel utensils. His sculptures are about the things he enjoys, he is building them by cutting. welding and shaping stainless steel into impressive animal forms since 2004. Fish, birds, bears, cats and even whales are crafted from everyday flatware, forks create layers of feather and fur, spoons add rounded curves and knives produce a shiny flat surface.

“Many people don’t realize at first how the sculptures are constructed. It is funny for me to watch their faces when they discover those sculptures are actually made of flatware!” says Gary with a smile on his face.
