For this project, I initially wanted to focus on extraordinary and dramatic tableware, but the more I researched, the more I realised that we are surrounded by useless things. I started looking at pointlessly elaborate inventions and discovered that I wanted to create something that on the surface seems to have a function, but in reality would be extremely pointless. It was important to me that the finished object would, like the tableware, be decorative.
Clock parts, slumped glass, sewing machine parts, paper, steel rod, brass, string, oak base, meccano wheels, porcelain.
Approximately 40" wide by 25" tall.
