MODERN ARTS AND CRAFTS
A number of modern artists have seized upon the idea of taking
pre-existing spoons and forks and modifying them to suit their artistic
I personally would have preferred that these artists work with sterling
silver, but most have opted to work with base metals
This stainless steel salad sized spoon and fork have handles which have
been decorated with various modern beads
and stones including an Egyptian scarab mounted using copper
wire. I found this set at a local art show and although these pieces
are unmarked, I purchased them from the artist, Carlene Gibson. The
back of the pieces are marked "gs 18/c"
This large two prong fork is decorated with various modern stones. It
is marked "RA1956"
This silver plated spoon has a picture oil painted in the bowl and is
marked "June Houston 1995" on the front and the back of the bowl is
marked "June Houston 6-6-95"
This Chinese made stainless steel spoon features an oil painted bowl
with three dolphins jumping out of the water.
The handle has been bent to create a stand for the bowl painting.
This piece is unmarked
