Water and Wine Carafes: Conversational Vessels

Conversational Vessels explore the relationships between people and between people and objects. Pairs or groups of functional tableware appear to be in conversation and entice us into their world through our projection of characters onto them.

Whirling Beakers

Whirling Beakers invite you to interact with a functional object through play and through use, the movement of the hand and the movement of the piece mirroring the flow of conversation around a table. The beakers - hallmarked and made of Britannia Silver - move and can be rolled around the edge, but will not fall as the rim of the beaker acts as a stop. The beakers always sit at angle, hinting at the conversation that their movement seeks to stimulate.
