Bowls for Fruit

About this project

A Bowl for Fruit
Photographer: Alex Brattell
A Bowl for Fruit sits on the boundary of sculpture and function, using the weight of the fruit to balance the bowl and draw it into equilibrium, with each different piece of fruit being placed slightly differently. The piece uses the basic curve, or outline of the bowl but then goes on to explore different notions of inside and outside with the hollow centre remaining empty even when the piece is holding fruit. The piece is fabricated from Sterling Silver and is hand finished with a linear matt finish.

A Bowl for Three Apples
Photographer: Alex Brattell
A Bowl for Three Apples rearranges the traditional shape of the bowl, dismantling it and reorganising the holding space. Both functional and sculptural, this piece also draws on the still life tradition in which everyday objects become vehicles for symbolic expression
