Kitchen tools are definitely some of the most mischievous items in the home - and it is also a room in the house that is likely to accumulate many objects - be careful not to neglect any!

Here we have the knives, a somewhat jittery group who you don't want to startle! I am exploring the idea of mini installation pieces to bring some playfulness to wall art. This piece has been made as a complete installation - the knives are fixed to the found vintage wooden bar - screw holes can be added at either end if desired, or you can use invisible fixings on the reverse with care.

Hugely influenced by the animism found in the Japanese Shinto religion and in particular the documentation of tool yōkai (tsukumogami) in both ancient and modern Japanese folklore, I see the spirit in almost everything; both living and inanimate. My love of the objects around me has led me to try and make some of them in clay; sometimes showing the personalities I always imagine them to have.

This wall installation piece is completely fixed and the knives cannot be moved. If you would like screw holes added at either end of the wooden bar, please note at checkout.
Approximate dimensions:
Length of wooden bar: 365mm
Maximum height: 220mm

ARTIST'S NOTE: As with most of the things I make, my ceramic pieces retain the look of being handmade and this is a part of their charm. My slab pieces sometimes retain my finger marks or other indentations on the reverse, as well as often retaining the texture of my rolling surface. Please make sure you consult the pictures carefully and that you are happy with the piece before purchasing.
