Indian bangles, jewels.
The spoon comes in a presentation box and has a hook in the back, so can be wall hung or framed if desired.
About this work:
The Schwegspoon series was born during a two-month residency in Ahmedabad India, a city with its own utensil museum.
An existing fascination for adorning these everyday objects was further developed with the addition of Indian bangles. The use of which was inspired by Anne’s guru Nek Chand, who created the wonderful sculpture park “The Rock Garden of Chandigarh”. During her residency, she was fortunate enough to meet him and create a sculpture in his park. She thanked him for his inspiration by donating one of her spoons.
The spoons have continued to evolve, being bought by private collectors and a series of 18 were created as thank you awards for the organisation Creative Partnerships.
