Ladles of Teeth

2009

Ladles of teeth consists of multiple glass ladles that look to be oozing tiny droplets of yellow liquid frozen in space. On a closer inspection the viewer is aware that the droplets are in fact human wisdom teeth cast in sugar and crystal. The audience are invited to eat the sugared teeth on display within the gallery. Ultimately, the piece speaks of nourishment, refinement and the tooth as a tool.Blown/Slumped/Fused Glass/Cast Sugar Dimensions Vary
