Artist Transforms Everyday Tableware Into Ornate Filigree Sculptures

Posted on Art 128

Wiebke Meurer, an artist who is fascinated by the European styles, decided to come up with something innovative and spectacular. She took inspiration from the creative work references that dated back to the 18th century tableware that included silverware, bowls, saucers and tea cups. She cuts into gold and silver objects to create these intricate filigree designs! If it is a spoon, the intricate slicing spans right from the handle to all the way down the base. Due to this, all pieces of utensils are transformed into delicate and elaborate forms of art.

However, these utensils cannot be used once Meurer does her job of transformation. You might not be able to carry food in the spoon as it might slip through the organic designs present. Meurer is not bothered about the usability of the material used, as she thinks that historical context adds more value to the utensil. Scroll down to have a look at the best works of Weibke Meurer.
